Hello everyone. I posted a few weeks back but it seems I'm still having some issues. I herniated two disks in my neck back in 07, and my right bicep lost about 30% of its strength (one disk was the C6, responsible for the biceps and wrist extensors which makes sense). The strength came back after about 3 months. I seem to have aggravated it again 2 months ago as my right bicep and wrists went weak again. I can still curl a 40 pound dumbbell but with great difficulty. MRI shows herniated c4-c5 and c5-c6 mostly on the right side. My arm is still weaker 2 months later. It doesn't sSorryeem to be getting any worse, and may even be a tad stronger but it's hard for me to tell. My eyelid was twitching shortly after my arm issue, I googled it and ALS came up. Now I've been getting near constant twitching not only in my bicep and wrist that I injured, but all over my body. I've had a neuro look at me and he didn't seem too concerned but I really wasn't satisfied. I'm not dropping anything and my legs are strong, but with my right bicep being weaker combined with the twitching in really scared. My triceps are still ok and I can bench press a good a amount of weight, but the fear is getting me down. Does anyone know if ALS can start like this? I have an EMG next Friday and I'm scared of what they'll tell me. Sorry for the long post any info would help. I'm 37 and the doc said I'm too young for something that bad but that comment annoyed me because I know it's not true. Thx everyone. I've had no atrophy that I can see, and doing daily tasks aren't a problem.
