Always, as you have written....

"....everytime I start trying to figure this on my own I get brought back here."

I'll bet you have been endlessly Dr. Googling,

*Here"s to Dr Google below....

Two in five Americans have falsely convinced themselves they have a serious disease, after turning to 'Dr Google' –
according to new research. Instead of alleviating concerns, 74 percent of those who have self-diagnosed online
say searching for their symptoms made them worry MORE about their health.

That may be due to the answers given by Dr Google, as the internet's medical advice was found by respondents
to be reliable less than 40 percent of the time.

*Key words.... "to be reliable less than 40 percent of the time."

Sixty-five percent of respondents who used the internet to self-diagnose themselves the results show typing your
symptoms into the search bar might do more harm than good.

Maybe if you continue with DR. Google you may stumble onto something.

We can't help you here.... period.

We really do understand that it is difficult not to have answers. Your answers are not here though. Ultimately they will come from a doctor. We can’t diagnose you, we have addressed your ALS questions to the best of our abilities. If you need online support look into the undiagnosed illness support groups on Facebook You may not find people with your symptoms there either but they will be in the same boat of looking for answers and sympathetic
