    I visited my neurologist a couple months ago because I was getting a weird sensation in my leg along with the muscle twitching all over. This is a top rated neurologist and he said to me that with ALS muscle twitching is not and initial symptom . he said there are no sensory symptoms in the beginning of that condition meaning that you won’t get muscle twitching, tingling, weird sensations, etc. he said the main first symptom is weakness in one or more of the arms and legs . so don’t worry about the twitching. Actually, I have had that on and off for over 30 years and I am perfectly healthy. Mine is related to my anxiety and stress. that’s why you really need to stop googling your symptoms. It’s not going to pertain to your individual situation and there is a lot of mis information out there. just take care of yourself the best you can. if your symptoms continue just let your doctor know about it. Not sure there’s much they can do. Hopefully it will resolve itself over sometime. Take care
