Any doctors appointment can cause apprehension.

I'm praying for you (I know you'll be well, but I pray you have peace).  PLEASE keep us posted and let us know what the neuro says... Hugs :)

Thankyou, Nyt and everyone. Perhaps you missed my update, Nyt. Neuro determined no ALS. He reviewed my EMG (which I thought had been 4 sticks; it was actually 11) and performed a full clinical evaluation. Reflexes were completely normal and he could observe no fasciculations. Dx'd as benign twitching with very strong anxiety underpinnings.
