I have had a bunch of weird symptoms that doctors can't seem to figure out.
I've had an MRI of head and brain, multiple blood test including a Lyme test, and a chest X-ray.
My symptoms started about 3 months ago with pain associated ONLY on the left side of my body. At the left elbow, behind the left knee it became hard to walk for awhile, and my left pec/neck and jaw muscles seemed tight.
Thats how it started and I was given pain and muscle relaxants by my GP. Later on I started getting weird twitches on my thigh. Only my thigh. My GP examined them and he got to see them go off. He said it was BFS or benign fasciculations.
Most recently I started getting weird cold sensations in the back of my head/neck which feels odd and I get twitches on my bicep and sometimes triceps and still around that left leg.
IM 18 YEARS OLD. I emphasize that because all of my doctors that I've talked to have set aside ALS. Because of my age. Although I know it is rare. I know it can also be a possibility and almost if not all of my symptoms match what I've read up on google which I know, is a bad thing since it can get my anxiety levels up and trust me it has.
I have weird back pain in the lower left half of my back and I see a twitch on the right side of my neck, not associated to my heart beat.
I'm getting very worried as I feel that no one will hear me out on my ALS fear. It's not that I want that disease but I haven't been told that I have anything else that could be making me feel so odd lately. I want to feel healthy and normal again. I use to lift weights often and now I'm just an anxiety, twitching wreck.
