Hello. First off I want to say that i admire each and every one of you and support you in your fight with this disease.
I am a 23 year old African American male. Close to 2 weeks ago. I was walking and my bottom ritht leg felt heavy. I went to the doctor and she admitted me to the emergency room. I then brgsn to frel this stiffness in my hands. Almost as if someone had injected sand in them, making it tougher to do everyday activities. I can still button buttons and pick up things with ease, but the stiffness has moved from my right hand and is now in my left. I have received a catscan, mri, blood work, and had an emg done. Everything came back clean except for my EMG which was "slightly abnormal". My docs say its NOT ALS. But my fingers and hands become stiffer and more difficult to move by the day. Possible ALS? Did anyone else have similar symptoms? I am very afraid. Im so young.
