Well I had my EMG and nerve conduction tests today. The doctor was really kind and tried not to hurt me too much. He said he was looking for changes in the way my motor neurones are wired that could point to ALS.

First he said he wasn't going to test my tongue because I wasn't slurring and I was eating and drinking okay. I trust him. After lots of testing he said he doesn't think it's ALS but I would have to wait and get tested again in 3-6 months to rule out ALS if it is too new to detect. (In a years time it would be completely ruled out.) He said he would have to refer me back to the neurologist to investigate further but he said he didn't expect to see me again which raised my spirits. My nerve conduction tests were normal.

As I left he assured me that he would inform me if he had found something to really worry about. I'm taking it as good news!
