- Learn about ALS
I was wondering does anyone know what else could cause atrophy other then ALS. Can a back problems that blocks the nerve really cuase atrophy or can other nerve diseases and muscle disease cause it? Is atrophy that seems to happen within 2 month or so be cuased by something other then ALS.? Also is it commom in ALS for the Atrophy to be happening in the same area in both legs at the same time or does it usually happen in done leg then in time mov e to the next?
