    Words on a screen will not truly quell your worry but coming from a cancer survivor, it's not serious until they actually say it is. You're doing the right thing in getting it checked out. As difficult as the waiting is, that's what you have to do for now. In the time I've been on the forum, no one has been diagnosed and it's my hope that streak will continue.

    Sending as always...

    Angie thank you, but I don't have toxic chemicals in my body, all mris are clean . I mean honestly I can't see anything else that would cause muscle waste and a small muscle in that atrophy leg not responding .not mention a horse voice for 2 weeks and fingers n hands that hurt for past 3 weeks. Thank u so much for your post .maybe I need j last something encouraging from a dr or something. Cause right now I'm an emotional wreck..trying to stay calm..

    Okay , just got back from neuro and we discussed lower emg along with the left leg being a little thinner. He said emg shows no signs of als. The one little muscle with the abnormality just a lil nerve issue .not als .. but during clinical
    Checkup I noticed the right hand I had a
    Little problem of thumb to pinky .can just barely touch the pinky . Hes giving me an Emg on my upper body tonight.
    Do u think that can be something als related.

    Based on the initial exam and scientific medical tests? No.

    OK, well, thats all very positive isn't it Expresso - I did say on 30th, on this thread, that 'nerve issues' not related to ALS were entirely possible. Let us know later on the results of your next emg.

    Got back from neuro where I did a upper
    EMG which dr said was normal. I will try to move on with this and it's symptoms which I still have . I have noticed a new one this morning my right gluteus muscle seems to have shrunk significantly. My wife did notice. With a little soreness. Legs feel a lil weak. Not going to seek 2nd opion as I try to adhere to all your voices of reason which do comfort me. Thank you so much everyone and I hope I can get over this
