Those aren't twitches. It's just your tongue moving around which everyone's does. It's a muscle.
You have started multiple threads on this topic and you've got good advice in the past. ALS causes you to lose control of your tongue and affects your speech before the tongue twitches start. The tongue twitches because the nerves are slowly dying which comes AFTER massive speech and swallowing issues. You are young and you should trust your ENT doctor

This has probably been occurring your whole life...and is totally meaningless.
Don't CREATE fear out of something you KNOW is certainly meaningless.

CHALLENGE this thinking of yours!
HOW can this POSSIBLY hurt you...in ANY way?

little spots on the tongue are definitely twitching ( like little indents)
I know and i do appreciate the advise, but when you are panicking its hard to be reasonable!
I know i should trust my doctor but he seemed very quick to pass everything off as anxiety which made me worry, then i read online that Als tongue twitches cant be felt :/ and mine...cant be felt! i know im being silly!

Ask yourself this:

>>> How can I possibly be harmed by something this insignificant?

You're making-up all kinds of events and outcomes for something that occur naturally, whether you realize it or not.
I looked at MY tongue. It does it too!
Now answer me-
How can 2 people POSSIBLY be "developing" ALS at the same time?!
Answer: ZERO.

Part of a VERY GOOD CBT-Book I've read says (paraphrasing some here)-
>>> It is FAR easier for an anxious mind to INVENT all kinds of disastrous outcomes, than it is to stay focused on FACTS, & what is KNOWN to be true B-;!!

Read that a few times...it's more profound & true than you know right now... :yes:

Your completely right, i shouldnt even really be second guessing a doctor.
Ive just found myself thinking 'but he didnt check the tongue at rest, and thats when they happen to' 'what if he missed something' 'what if!'
I have been scared of many different illnesses but this is by far the most frightening!
Thank you for responding, i know im being slightly irrational! x

You're not being "irrational" per-se...you're just "thinking the wrong way"!

Read my previous post again, and again.
Realizing those points helped me...a LOT.

Ask yourself...does every little event I notice about myself = doom & gloom?
Of course not!!! You are NO DIFFERENT from a person who doesn't have HA symptoms.
Your misdirected THOUGHTS & FEARS are the only difference.

And again >>> Thoughts & Fears cannot possibly hurt you.
Therefore >>> What you're REALLY afraid of is...A THOUGHT :spineyes:????
Do you see how off-kilter thoughts/fears can be so ridiculous?
