Can pain come suddenly

Hi Rita, just like last time, 3 years ago we showed you why you don't have ALS. Please go see a doctor, even a video consult should be enough to explain to you why you don't have ALS. All the best.

Previous thread. Als?

You have been posting your non-ALS symptoms since 2017 and had a normal EMG in 2018.
You don’t have ALS. Why do you need reassurance?

No reason to be scared, perfectly normal people have pain for some reason and the mind can make it mushroom. As pointed out, you've been scared on and off for a while. You can see a therapist on line or in person, whatever is safe where you are, to treat your health anxiety, and I encourage you to do so. Taking that step is the best way to feel better and live the full life you deserve.

Best,
Laurie
