Shawn, that's pretty much what I am going through. I got an MRI for other "symptoms" and it came out clear, but an MRI can't detect ALS so that is what I start worrying about, first in my leg (it's now fine) and when I google about it, I read about Bulbar and then subsequently develop symptoms. The problem is, the symptoms feel real.
I don't want to google this, but if my symptoms either diminish substantially or disappear altogether with a xanax, does that mean it is not ALS? I mean, ALS symptoms don't come and go like that, even in the beginning, right?
