- Learn about ALS
I would like to thank all of you in advance for reading my concerns. I am 39 yeasr old male. It all started in july last year. Initially i was suffering from burning pain in my arms and legs. I went to a dibatologists. But my sugar level came normal. Then I went to a neurologist. He adviced some blood tests. I was found deficient of vitamin B12 and Vitamin D. I took injections for Vitamin B12 and took meds for vitamin D. my burning pain gone thereafter (almost). In september I felt jaw quivering. Next day twitching started in my right leg as well. In next 15-20 days twitching started almost all over my body. Sometime here sometime there, including cheeks, lips, jaw. I went to that neurologist again. This time he did nerve conduction test (not EMG). He told me everything is fine and not to worry about als. I went to another neurologist for second openion and he also said same thing. About a month later after my symptoms did not dubside I went to third neurologist and even he assured me that everything is fine. But from last three weeks I am suffering from hyper salivation. although I dont drool but some time I aspirate on my saliva. Twitching is still present all over my body but hypersalivation making me crazy. I am fearing abt bulbar onset. some time i also feel like having difficulty in swallowing but i m still able to eat normal foods (veg and nonveg all). slurred speech is not present in my case. plz tell me does my symptom siund like bulbar onset. Does bulbar onset start with widedpread twitching? plz help me.
