I was doing well for about a week...but now am freaking again about motor neuron disease. Had a clean clinical exam by experienced neuro - no emg recommended but he scheduled one 4 months from now for peace of mind. The new symptom that is really freaking me out is tingling towards the tips of my pinky and ring finger. I had injured my ring finger nerve with a propping myself out of bed and one side of my finger is partially numb. Saw hand specialist who noted no structural issues and said nerve damage may take months to heal!
The things revolving in my mind are:
1). How definitive is a clean neuro exam? Do experienced neurologists frequently miss ALS signs?
2). Experts say tingling and numbness isn't associated with ALS, but I read stories of patients reporting tingling and numbness as a very early overlooked symptom. Confused by this logically
