Neuros are not too expensive. The EMG is unless you have insurance. I began twitching body-wide really abruptly and experienced 'pseudocramping' (feels like really tiny pains/fleeting 'cramp-like' feeling or you're about to cramp, but never quite). My twitching has reduced drastically; not sure how to feel about that honestly. The week prior I'd been hyperventilating/feeling unable to catch my breath. I'm hoping it was brought on by that.
Alright man, I know it's tremendously unlikely you get over this fear after visiting a neurologist; I did and it's done little to relieve my fear. I've scheduled another appointment soon for a second opinion.7 months. 7 months according to top MND without weakness and a clean EMG and you're 'officially' cleared. I've read copiously on this disease and if all you are is twitching, you're 99.999% likely to be fine. Unfortunately, personally, my twitching has presented with a few other things that slightly works against my odds (not by much, I'm probably fine too). It's going to be a long, long 7 months. But there's your definitive end. I am so sorry you're going through this man. A clean EMG will help to reduce your fears, but it will not end them. Me, I'm only a month and a half into this. If you do see a neurologist and you have no UMN symptoms/clean EMG/no weakness/no atrophy, I can tell you it's ridiculously, ridiculously unlikely. Ridiculously.
so...basically pain has nothing to do with nor does range of motion or stiffness in the ankle joint? it comes and goes the stiffness and pain comes and goes too.sometimes pain in upper shin muscle too. Had calf cramp today and then be sore from time to time putting weight randomly during training.
