So much has changed since I first sent that message on 7/22/18. Then I had right leg weakness and left arm weakness. Thank you all for the support to seek a neuromuscular physician. I went through MRIs, EMG, nerve conduction and was finally diagnosed on 8/30/18 with ALS. This in part because my symptoms are rapidly worsening. My right arm is now weaker than my left arm and can't lift either. My left leg is markedly weaker and most drastic is my speech is slurred, difficulty breathing and swallowing. Today was my first day at the ALS Clinic and it was so overwhelming. I see how fast I'm progressing and it scares me.
