In all honesty, is it something you just have to wait out and see what happens..after a couple months of different symptoms..?
I got my left side only EMG about 2 and a half weeks ago and the neuro said I was fine, but I am terrified I still have this. I had two neuros basically say I don't have it and just said it was all due to stress, but I have read so many different things on the internet I don't know what to think anymore.
My first neuro who actually worked with different ALS patients, said that you can't have symptoms months before leading up to a diagnoses of ALS (since I first came to him after only feeling weird symptoms for about 2-3 weeks), then I will watch documentaries of people in their 20's like myself and read things and people will say they felt twitches or a stiff muslces months or even a year before they were actually diagnosed.
I have been currently feeling new symptoms after my first EMG. These symptoms thought have been progressing in my right arm for about two and a half months. I have 24/7 cramping in my right hand, forearm, bicep, shoulder and back. I also have twitches all over my upper right side as well that hurt, because it's always cramped. I rarely have twitches anywhere else. My arm also feels weaker and more shaky, compared to my left arm. I also have stiffness and pain in right knee.
I had heard that ALS usually starts with one limb then spreads. That also scares me too and I have had a lot of blood work done, mri's, and a spinal tap to see if it was something else. Anyone have any advice? Thank you.
