Hi all, 3 months of sporadic twitching, one arm fatigue, random tingling on tongue, and facial tension led me to an initial neuro consult. He did a clinical exam and saw nothing to be concerned about at all except anxiety. Three weeks later, the symptoms continued (no worse, no better) and I've felt fatigued legs (both) and I propped myself up on one of my palms getting out of bed which led to an intense pain on one side of my ring finger. The pain is not constant, but the tingling on that side is.
This led me back to the neuro office today. He did another clinical exam, didn't see anything to be concerned with again, but recommended an EMG once I told him I was worried about motor neuron disease. I did ask him if he saw anything clinically with me to be concerned about and he told me absolutely not. He also told me he had seen ALS patients and that none of my symptoms matched anything he had seen but thought an EMG was appropriate to see if anything was wrong.
I have had health anxiety for the past 6 months or so, and am treating it, but these symptoms won't break. The earliest I could get an EMG was 3 months, I am hoping some of these symptoms resolve in 3 months, but very pessimistic right now due to fatigue.
