Hi Zac. You have a few good things going for you. First your age. ALS is not usually found in people in our age group. Not usual but possible. Secondly for your symptoms to be as bad in only 3 weeks sounds like something else. Where are you from and have you seen a doctor yet? AL.

Hello Zak, hope things go a little better for you today. It is unnerving, I know, to wait for a DX. The problem is compounded because so many of these conditions mimic one another. That's one reason why it takes a long time to figure out exactly what is going on. I've been at it now for 5 months. The best I can tell you is to try to stay calm and let the doc's run the tests and wait for the results. Try to distract yourself with friends, hobbies, a good movie, anything that helps you relax. Cindy

So you understand how difficult it is to live with a debilitating illness. That must increase your concerns for you own health. Does MS affect your Mom's abilities very much? BYW, good luck today at your appointment.
