- Learn about ALS
Hi I am a 20 year old male. About a week ago I began to notice that my right hand was weak and it was sometimes hard to grasp my pencil during lectures. The strength of my grip comes and goes depending if I am standing or if I am sitting. I have a stronger more normal feeling when I'm standing compared to when I'm sitting and my hand becomes noticeably weaker. My hand is also more weaker during the morning than the evening. I often think of the worst when I develop symptoms like this and so I have come here to ask if ALS typically has early symptoms like this or if I'm overthinking it. I am going to the doctor tomorrow.
