You need to stop. Your follow up emg is in 2 weeks. Please post the results and your doctor’s opinion but we can not add anything to our comments. If you need to vent your worry there are anxiety forums to do that. We can’t diagnose you and we do not have the resources to hold your hand.

No need to reply. No more posts until after the emg

Hello!

Sow i had my two appointments with the Neurologists.
The one who did my Clinical exam said that everything was ok and she said that's it not somethibf freightning.

After that the visit with my main Neurologist. He did the follow up EMG. He said that everything was the same as the last one in february. But he said that he could see that something has damages my right leg muscles, he couldn't see when or what it was in the past.

Now i have a folluw up with my GP to discuss the results. It's keep frustrating me what's going or with the right leg.

And thank you for your commends.

Sow i came back from my GP to discuss the results of the EMG. The Neurologist told me that he saw, hope i say it right in English. Damage at a nerve tract. L1-L2L3, he said that the second EmG was better then the first one and that i may caused by a virus of infection. Its really frustrating that first they said it's BFSyndrome, then that the saw damage myopathy etc etc. I just hope it will stop. If i want to search muscle atrophy by virus, i Cant find a lot of information. Only about polio.


Thank you for your kindness.

Good news with regards to your emg showing no ALS and in also showing improvements. That's great and means ALS should no longer be a worry for you.

Your neurologist would be the best person to explain to you what your particular results mean and what they think might be next steps. This forum is for those diagnosed with ALS and their caregivers and can only provide general information pertaining to its focus, ALS.

Best wishes

If there is a viral myopathy, PT may help.

Doctors sometimes change their approach based on the best evidence they have, just like you do, in the things you do well.

The good news, you don't belong here. All the best.

Thank you for your reactions!

I have a follow up in august.

It's just, atrophy in the upperleg, body wide twitching. The only thing they said is nothing serious, we only see that you had "something" in the past that affected your neves"

Everytime i want to check what Else can make these upperleg atrophy and body twitching, keeps me gnawing.

But thank you.
