I am having another really bad time worrying about having ALS. I have been worried about this off and on since 2001! My symptoms are a weak feeling in left hand with tingling & crampy, weak, tingling in left front of foot, constant muscle twitches everywhere. My symptoms started around 2001, and I had 2 EMG's (one on left arm and then one on left leg at two separate times). I had a brain MRI and 4 hours of neurological testing at the hospital. All tests came back fine. After that, all my symptoms went away. To make a very long story short, about every 3 years or so the symptoms come back, I go to the doctor and then they go away. This time all my symptoms are back again and I can't help but think that this time the feelings will stay and only get worse. I went to a new doctor (my old dr. left the practice) and after my exam he said he didn't think I had ALS, but when I asked him if he thought I didn't have it for certain he said "never say never". Well, this threw me over the edge and I can't stop thinking that I have it for sure. I am a mess! I just needed to tell my story because I feel so alone and hopeless. I feel terrible today.
