I'm at 33 y/o male. Let me start from the beginning about 6 weeks ago I woke up with an eye floater. I figured it would pass, but when I didn't I saw my eye DR. He did a full examination and told me he didn't think it was serious, and sometimes happens when the liquid in your eye crystallizes. But to come back it it got worse and I saw peppered spots. Being the person I am I worry, so I got an MRI done. Completely clear. Then I began having pain in my shoulders and upper back. This worried me further. Then I began having pain in my joints in my arms. (More worry) A week or so later I started noticing muscle twitches mainly in my calfs and biceps. I decided to looked it up and the first thing I saw was ALS. This is where my nightmare began! This scared me to no end. I have a new baby boy on the way, all I think of is I won't be here for him and my wife. From there I noticed my muscles here burning out quickly and would start shaking if I used them too much. I went to first care and they are the gamut of blood tests on me, just about every one you and have. All came back normal. I was referred to a neurologist. (Waiting in the appointment) Since then my joints in my knees, shoulders, elbows and hands pop all the time. Now my arms and legs are sore all the time and it I even stretch is causes me pain. Also I get little twitches by my eyes, and my hand are a bit shaky. Please someone help me!
