Hello all, I'm new so bear with me. Nov. 1st I began having fasciculations in my right tricep (almost continuous at first) I was'nt really concerned because I had been doing a lot of heavy lifting arond the house landscaping and thought I had strained something, however after 1 week and still no let up I went to see a doctor and referred me to a neurologist. After a complete physical which I passed with flying colors he ordered a EMG. The EMG came back bad; sharps, fibrillations etc... in my right triceps and my right anterior tibia. I asked about ALS but he seemed very reluctant to talk about it, however he said that it could'nt be ruled out. I went to the University of Minnesota Fairview for another opinion. I had another complete physical which I passed with flying colors, but when the neuro saw the results of my previous EMG he said it could only be two things, either als or a virus. He said that a virus was highly unlikely. It has been over 2 months and my triceps do not seem to be fasciculating as much as in the beginning, however the symptoms have spread to my left arm and ocassionally in my legs. Also whenI flex my triceps hard or do push-ups they will fasciculate wildy for 30 seconds before they clam down. I have no weakness, atrophy, or coordination problems as of yet. I am a 37 year old man with 3 kids (13,2, and 4 weeks) and I'm scared to death. Please help. Thank you, Stacy.
