Have a nice evening to all, I'm forwarding the message from today's EMG examination.The doctor examined a total of 5 muscles in my left leg (where I have problems) BUT in the muscle of the ti.anterior shin there are rare signs of denervation.
The table also includes sharp waves and fibrillation (rare).

However, the report concludes that there is no evidence of motoneuron disease.
Did anyone have a similar report / finding, and then was he diagnosed with ALS?
We have absolutely no right to want the conclusion that the doctor gave me, but I am only looking for answers to questions.
Just for desperate advice ... denervation is ALS? EMG two months ago was clean. Thank you all. Sincerely and cordially❤️

Lucy, if you could post the actual report with your identifying info removed. It sounds like you've been cleared of ALS, but are trying to interpret it on your own and picking out things you think might support your fears. The actual report is more helpful.

Not all denervation is ALS. Not even most. ALS is a specific pattern and is found in a widespread pattern. Your doctor concluded no MND based on their findings I see no reason to disbelieve that. I am sorry you can not accept it. We can not help you here.
closing thread. Do not start another unless you are diagnosed with mnd by a neuromuscular specialist ( which is not going to happen)
