I am worried I have ALS. I started out about 3 months ago with a dull ache pain on my left elbow, neck, tightness back of my knee. At one point I was limping because of the weird tightness on the back of my knee. My knee is better now but still tight.
I have had an MRI, multiple blood test, Lyme test, been sent to a chiropractor. And still no diagnoses.
My left thigh keeps twitching so I then saw the doctor again hoping I'd get a diagnoses at last, I've been told is BFS by my doctor.
Recently. I get a tingly feeling only in the back of my head, maybe like elictricity shocks? No pain but it does feel very weird and my arms both go numb and feel like they are falling asleep. My left arm feels very tight now too, hard to straighten it without feeling any pain. The tinglyness in the back of my head is followed by a cold feeling inside my body. Not on the skin, it travels to the back of my neck and goes down my spine.
I'm 18 years old and very fit. I lift weights constantly up until I started feeling this way. I do realize that this could be something else, MS, a herniated disc (but I have no injuries prior to feeling the pain which started 3 months ago)
I'm really worried since its been so long and I have been told nothing, the twitching is no longer just in my thigh now, I can feel it in my lips, left neck, and behind the knee now, I can only feel them occasionally but I've heard that ALS twitches are very fine and you cannot see them sometimes.
Any replies will be greatly appreciated.
