Hi.

I have seen 3 Neuors since May of 2021.

My symptoms are only twitching. Mostly in my legs, arms and back.

In may I had a right side EMG. Results were clean. ALS specific Neuro did this test.

In August a right leg EMG. Clean as well.

Went to another neuro in October. He did another emg Left side this time and said I do not have MND.

I do have a Hoffman but I have toes downing Babinski (spelling). My wife has Hoffman as well.

I had an MRI that showed Mild to Moderate Degenerative Disc disease in my Lumbar and Cervical. I also was told by the last Neuro that I have median nerve irritation in my left arm. I get pins and needles in my legs, arms and neck area. Could my twitching be related to this?

Was I tested to early for ALS? I have had 3 EMGs in about 6-7 month period. I am also 36 years old.

I also have had no clinical weakness.
