You can keep adding symptoms but we won't see ALS. Google hand exercises or ask your PCP to refer you for a PT session where you can get a list for a home regimen.

You had the clean EMG not too long ago, and this clears you of ALS. So clearly something else is going on. Keep working with your doctors. People here won’t tell you anything different except to reassure you it’s not ALS.

With ALS, the EMG abnormalities will be widespread, even in areas that are functionally still normal.

So, no, it doesn’t matter if they only tested one side, or didn’t test a symptomatic area. And it can’t be done too early.

Beamin, you asked that nearly same question in your first Thread "Question".

As you wrote then...

"But my EMG wasnt done on the side of my Thumb was done on the other side is that still a good sign the other side was clean."

It was answered.

Then again today...

"So it doesnt matter if that side was tested"

Answered once again.

You do not have ALS... let it go.
