Although I have no diagnosis of yet, but have muscle wasting I was curious about this contoversial link between ALS and physical activity. I had been out in my yard for a few week prior to illness building fence, landscaping,planting trees in the extreme heat, and then my illness came out like a freight train the cramping, twitching,stiff muscles,etc. I was reading there could be a possible link to ALS in younger people from hard physical exercise. So not to insult any of the more mature members, but did any of the younger people with ALS find exercise to be a trigger. Just curious, at times I find myself thinking of what caused this, although now it doesn't matter because I am ill, but I was just wondering if anyone found if they thought anything trigerred their illness.
