Was told I had ALS, but after thorough tests in Houston, was told it was Progressive Muscular Atrophy (PMA). Weak arms and strength in hands. When I asked for a prognosis, the doc said that everone is different and only God can tell what I can expect. Disturbing to say the least. As I understand, PMA acts like ALS, only slower symptom progression. Can anyone let me know what to watch out for? Any foods or meds I should avoid or take? So far, I can function normally, except for the hand strength. God bless all of you.
