I don't think you're in limbo and if you want to end your "two years of hell," the best way to do that is to accept(!) a normal EMG and stop chasing ALS as a possible "answer." In fact, it may well be time to stop focusing on finding a diagnosis that explains everything, because almost certainly anxiety plays a role and until you deal with that, it will be difficult to parse what could be physical and what could be psychogenic.

As to your question, people with ALS use a wheelchair when their muscles no longer support walking. Many muscles are involved with ambulation, so for some it might be more gradually decreasing steps at a time and for others the change might be more sudden.

However, neither scenario applies to you, because no one here thinks you have ALS. The EMG shows no signs of it, nor do your doctors believe it is a possibility. You can pretend you never heard of ALS and seek out/focus on therapy for your body and mind, or you can continue obsessed and miserable.

The choice is yours, not ours. I will close this thread and leave you to it. Please do not open another unless you are diagnosed with an MND.
