So first in fore most, I have Health anxiety. Why else would I be here
Right now im having the biggest fear of having ALS. Why? Because, Im having twitches in muscles all over my body (about 20 times a minute). My muscles even jerk some too. My whole leg, arm , and foot will just move NOT on command.
Ive read that there ARE certain risk factors to ALS, like genetics, Concussions, and Certain Dietary things like MSG.
Also, I know that Glutamine and Glutamate show up extremely high in the spinal fluid of ALS patients.
WHY does that scare me even more??
Ive had a Concussion, a bad one! I had an out of body experience and everything. (only one concussion tho)
As, of yesterday , ive been supplementing 10 grams of glutamine in my diet!
ON OTHER HAND.
*Ive been dealing with health anxiety, Which makes you irrational about certain situations, I know.
*Im 23 years old, male.
*I havent loss any noticable strength, Yet. ( I even did a work out like 30 mins ago, because im scared )
*No, noticeable signs, of unequal muscle atrophy for now.
I was just on an ALS forum reading, and I lost it, I broke down and actually cried. I feel like a wuss. This thing is like a dark looming cloud over me... I dont know why im posting this, maybe for reassurance. I know most of us here are in the same boat. if not boat, maybe ship. I feel for all suffers, whether it be anxiety or not. Life shouldn't be spent in suffering, life should be a full experience for all.
