I believe I have ALS

Posted , 4 users are following.

For 5 months now I have been displaying symptoms and signs reflecting ALS.

Muscle weakness ,atrophy, spasms. Cramps fasciculations in both legs and arms. Difficulty swallowing and breathing, loss of voice. Serve weight loss of 50 lbs and chronic fatigue and constipation. All my blood work has come back excellent and gastrointestinal workup for constipation clear. I recently had a EMG, which the report said normal. I read that 40% of EMG give false negatives. With this rapid decline. I don't know what to do or will I ever find an answer! Help
