- Learn about ALS
Hi- I appreciate everyone’s responses. I have been having a number of symptoms over the past three months. It started off with some vague numbness and tingling in my left hand which has improved. I also at that time noticed some twitching in my right hand hypothenar region. Since that time I have noticed a “dent” in my right upper thigh and most recently noticed some twitching on sides of my mouth especially when making a smile on the right corner of my mouth and lip. In addition, I have noticed some twitching in the middle of my back. I am super worried because I read about als presenting with fasiculations on the internet. I saw a neurologist a few days ago who did an exam and found nothing super alarming but does want to see me back in 6 months. He did not recommend any further testing at this time. No EMG, MRI etc...The fact that he wanted to see me back in 6 months made me super nervous. Appreciate everyone’s thoughts? Thanks.
