Localized twitching-could it be ***
« on: May 19, 2014, 10:13:19 AM »
Hey guys a question for all of you who have experience with ALS. I have be having twitching in the same localized spot in my forearm for the past 4 days. I am not sure if my arm is getting weaker as it is my non dominant arm.  This is sort of silly but I arm wrestled someone with the arm in question and won--that being said should I consider this as benign or be more concerned?

Thank you,

The weakness almost always happens in the distal portions of the body first...meaning you would no longer be able to button your shirt or open a door by the time the twitching hits.  Twitching is a late sign of ***.  BTW: I just got over a 2 day hot spot in my right arm.  As much as I know about this illness it still unsettles me.
