Could it be ALS

Posted , 6 users are following.

  1. So i am concerned i might have ALS because of the symptoms i have had, all started in October where basically my whole body felt fatigued, like when driving my arms and legs would start burning just from driving, im 26 and was working out 4 times a week before this but stopped because i thought it was causing it, didnt help though, so i went to the doctor they checked my blood and found nothing.

2 months passed and didn't feel better arms and legs weak, i started developing muscle twitching all over my body so i went back to the doctor, they wrote it of as anexity and gave me some meds(never had it anexity before) and she referred me to a Rheumatologist, she did mri's and more blood work, tested for lyme etc. She did noticed my ck levels were alittle high, which freaked me out! But checked it 2 weeks later and was normal agian, she said i she didnt find anything, and reffered me to a neuroligist, so had to wait 2 months,

New symptoms before i went including the old ones were random joint pain, and jaw pain that followed up but having excessive saliva in my mouth, that is another thing that freaked me out, also noticed my finger tips feel numb at times and my hands always fall asleep when laying down, or holding my phone,

So finally got my appointment with the neruoligst and he checked my strength and said i was good there and checked my reflexes that said were normal,

Im freaking out to what is wrong with me, doctors have found nothing. Anyone have symptoms like mine, and ever figure out what it is?
