- Learn about ALS
Hi, my names chris, recently about a month ago i had a foot drop in my right foot so i decided to get it checked out after a week the doctor said that it was probably something called the parroneal nerve that was damaged and it should go away in 3 days.. it had been another 2 weeks and it had gotten worse. I could lift my foot a little bit before but after 2 weeks a couldnt lift my foot at all i went back to the doctor and he said the same thing but that its odd that its gone for so long so he scheduled me for an emg in a month.its now passed 3 weeks and i have not had the emg yet im starting to get twitches in my upper lip that feel like its coming from under the skin and also under my right eye. also my pinky finger on my right hand goes numb at random times and i get cramps and pains on the right side of my body mostly in the thigh area.. also my reflexes have gone kind of weird..(i dont know if that has anything to do with it but id thought id mention it anyways)..like even if someone goes to hug me ill stick my arm out to try to stop them with no control over it, and it has never been like that before. anybody that has had the same things happen or knows of maybe what these symptoms mean, id really appreciate some feedback because i am kind of scared since i am very young. i just turned 18 a couple of months ago. Thank you.
