ALS moves FAST. Muscle wasting would show as in you would start dragging a foot, be unable to pick up a coffee mug, and the muscles would be noticeably smaller on one arm or leg.  I get cramps all the time (legs, stomach muscles, jaw) but it's usually dehydration or I need a vitamin.  Twitches and cramps are very common.

so my forearm sort of tightening is nothing to worry about? seems to stop and come sometimes.

This kind of sparked my ALS fears a bit. I have noticably smaller muscles on my left arm, even my wrist and hand are significantly smaller. On top of that I fatigue super easily in that arm, and have actual weakness compared to my right arm. I was given a diagnosis of functional symptoms and have realy bad HOCD/GAD, but could that realy account for the size difference in arms?

P.s. sorry fir hijacking thread

being an athlete in a full contact sport, I would think the soreness I been getting this week is from als.
