Hi everybody, in March 2019 I had a molar pregnancy and lost 20kg. During the pregnancy, I began to have left ring finger left hand and left arm tremor with twitching first in my left arm then everywhere and shortness of breath, stiff neck and headache. My GP did some basic tests blood and weakness who were ok and said no need to see a neurologist. Between that time and now I still had some tremors, twitches but not as bad as during the pregnancy so I got on with my life. I just learned that I am 3 weeks pregnant but I knew something was going on because 2 weeks ago my left ring finger, left hand, and left arm began twitching and having bad tremors again with shortness of breath stiff neck and headache exactly as last time. My GP wants to see me in a month in person to assess again the situation but said my hand would not have been functional anymore in that amount of time. Can ALS present that way? Can a beginning of pregnancy exacerbate symptoms? Thank you!
