- Learn about ALS
I have had twitching, muscle pain aches off and on for almost 2.5 years now. It has subsidied to almost non existent over the last year with the twitching. I had an MRI and EMG last January which were both clean. I guess the reason i'm posting this question is about 2 years i moved a sofa about 100 feet with my brother and i found muscle fatique in my left arm. Everything was good until about a month ago when my lower back flared up and i did some xtensions lying down on my stomach and pushing my back up into extension. As i started doing that at about the sixth or seventh rep of 10 i felt a tired feeling there. In years before the twitching started a won't get the same feeling. I a little acky from the shoulder to the hand at times since then. I had a strenght test down and i have 120 psi in both hands which is a little above normal for my age. As my neoro said it was something called BFS were symtoms come and then go where as he said with ALS once it comes it stays. I'm insecure and i guess nervous about it. Any input would help. Thank you.
