My husband lost strength in his left hand and is unable to touch his thumb to each finger as of two weeks ago. He has developed continuous muscle fasciculations in both of his upper arms and now both of his hands. He does not have any pain, tingling, or numbness. Just "stiff" fingers and weakness. He has an appointment this week for EMG testing. Am extremely concerned that this is an early onset of ALS. Please advise.
