It can be difficult for PALS to remember onset and diagnosis in an objective way. There are also PALS who believe their diagnosis was unnecessarily delayed, and who sometimes project more onto others than they may intend. At any rate, there are scary but misleading stories all over the net.

Health anxiety aside, I honestly cannot think of anyone who came here with your self-described picture, who subsequently had a status change to PALS. The reason is simple: ALS is hard to miss, because things stop working entirely. It's not about feeling, it's about failing.

You can see a neuro or physical rehab specialist (physiatrist) about the atrophy without going on meds, as I'm sure you realize. But that is a matter for you to decide, and we have said our piece. So I'll close this thread and invite you to stop by with an update after your neuro appointment and/or EMG.
