- Learn about ALS
The past 4 months ive had twitches in my calves,feet neck,under my lower lip,occasional cramps in calf and thigh muscles.my calf muscles are much more defined and appear to have wasted which is where most of the twithes occur along with my feet.recently my legs feel heavy and my ankles are getting sore around the joint........my patella reflexes are slightly brisk. my left shoulder is getting weak, like i injured it all over agian. I went to my gp who performed some blood work on me and my cpk level showed mild inflammation and he has a nuero that sends out a tech to perform a ncv/emg test on you where the results are looked at by a nuero....at my gp s office. My emg stated normal results for innervated paraspinals and distal muscles in lower legs claimed i had mild to moderate carpal tunnel. i was relieved to see that emg was clean but my symptoms have only persisted and im worried that maybe the test missed something or it was done to soon in the process to pickup anything. Is there anyone here who had a clean emg with symptoms and have show up on a later emg and does als weakness something that is gradually noticed until its obviuos...i can feel changes in my body as im in tune with my body Is wasting due to als dents in your muscles or just a shrinking of the whole muscle and if i were wasting in my calf muscles wouldnt show up on emg. thankyou all in advance for taking time out of day to help people like myself with als concerns.
