Hello,

I'm 23 and have 24/7 non stop twitching on both my calves for years now (3+ years). No pains or cramps whatsoever, and no weakness as far as i'm concerned. Anyway, the constant twitching would bother me to google my symptoms and well here i am posting about my symptoms. I didn't bother going to the doctor, since my symptoms have not become worse over the years - and tbh, i still don't know if i should go get it checked, since its "only" fasciculations. Have there been any cases, where an ALS patient would have twitching for years, before the symtoms gotten worse?

Hello there- please make sure to read this: Read Before Posting where it answers your question. In short, no. Twitching does not indicate ALS unless accompanied by other specific neurological symptoms. If you are concerned about your health, a doctor should be your first stop, but random twitching absent of anything else means this forum is definitely not for you!

All the best
