ALS Questions/ Scare
« on: April 21, 2014, 05:25:57 PM »
So this weekend went by smoothly. I kept my mind off of a lot of things and I actually enjoyed a few days. That is, until Monday (today) came about. I'm having a really hard time coping with my muscle twitches. I know that for a 22 year old ALS non familial is almost unheard of but I just can't shake this fear. My calf muscles are insane, my left one is terrible. Occasionally I have twitches over other areas like my feet and shoulders. My calf muscles never, ever stop though. I wake up feeling stiff every day and sometimes wake up because my backs so sore. Upper back. Sleeping is difficult and I always wake up feeling incomplete. I'm constantly yawning and have been so tired... Anything that requires extensive moving like skateboarding makes my mailed feel so sore for easily a day or two. Lately it's been better though. Has anyone else been thru this fear? What helped you get over it? I also need to mention it's been 3 1/2 months since I noticed the twitching and no weakness (knock on wood). Would this be a good amount of time to assume I'm ok? I've read 6 months on the Internet. I can't do another 2 1/2 months under this kind of stress.  I've read so many stores of people who started twitching as their first symptom.

I don't understand how my shoulder can twitch for two days and my Calfs are constant for over three months. Doesn't seem logical.

The pin prick sensations. Upper back pain like it's ripping or slightly on fire when I sit down. Never when I stand up. Feeling as if my finger is cold. Random muscle spasms (like twitches but fast and short), twitches, and cramping (only when I attempt to self induce them) have me freaked out. This forum has helped me slightly and I want some feedback. Please.
