Sad that for all the pain you are having. It is also bad that you are having such little sleep.

What else did your neuro. tell you? What does he/she think is causing your pain? We're any tests done? We're you given medicine? Are you supposed to see him/her again? Do you have a GP as well trying to figure things out for you?

In my experience and from what I have learned, tingling is NOT a symptom of ALS.

You do not appear to have a deep grasp of the neuro consultation and test results. i would urge you to contact your primary care physician and make an appointment. He or she sould have details of your test results (or can get them). Bring a trusted friend or family member with you to take notes as your PCP explains everything to you including what the next steps should be to address your health concerns.
