Male, 24 years old.

First i want to apologize for my english that is not my language.

So my symptoms started 1 month ago, i started to have tremors in every muscle i move.

Starting in my feet, belly head, face, arms and hands.

And when i say tremors i mean not a little tremor that the hand is shaking or somthing like that.

I mean like very hard tremors in every muscle i move.

For example when i move my wrist up and down it moves like a chain wheel with not smoth movement.

And it happens with allmost every muscle i move when i lift up my feet it trembales all the way up and when i lower it it trambles all the way down. Same thing with head left right up and down and face and arms bassicly every muscle!

I dont have tremors while resting or not moving the muscles.

Now for the last weak i started to have weakness in my fingers of two hands especialy left hand.

My pinky and thumb are very weak now. Its hard for me to do do motions like tuching my pinky to the thumb or tuching all fingers together seems to be impossible.

They just dont want to move, althou i still work and use them and moving and everything they are just very weak.

Ive been chaked by 3 neurologys chaked my whole body and sayed everything is ok.

Ive done blood tests and all ok.

Cpk ok

Emg test - ok

Chaked for wilson disease - ok

I have to notice when i done the emg my fingers were not that weak and i couldve create muscle power withem.

What seems to be the problem with me?

All the tremors started in maybe 2 days! Immidiatly and not slowly.

I will love to get some help

    Please go to ALS doctor, (Nuero Science Doctor) THEY CAN RULE out so many diseases and not wasting a lot of your time.

    It is very hard to find an ALS doctor, hope you have one in your area.

    Goodluck.

      It sounds like that, but ALS doctors do not give diagnose right away until so many tests (mostly blood tests, EMG), I lost my husband to ALS he only live for 6 month which is rare, it is also rare to live more than 5 years, like the case of a Physicist Hawking he live more than 25 years I think.

      I, having the same problem for more than 2 months now, it may not be ALS it is non-transferrable but there is something wrong with me, I know.  Though the Neurologist and Orthopedic and my primary doctor says results of my blood tests are negative, my doctor is sending me to ALS doctor because he can diagnose better than any other specialist specially when there is issue about weakness.

      Good luck please be brave, I learn to accept my condition, I just need to know what is exactly I have.

      Prayers for you.

    Hi, have you had an MRI taken, tremors can be very difficult to treat, i know this as i have tremors & weakness down my left side & the same as you in left leg & hand, really bad. Has anyone mentioned a condition called F.N.D? Proper name Functional Neurological Disorder, you might want to look it up.

    F.N.D. org..... hope this helps

    Hello, this is not going to help much but it does sound very similar to the symptoms of some of my clients with Multiple schlorosis (MS) and Parkinson's disease. The muscle rigidty also links with Huntington's disease (any of this in the family?).

    I would like you to google these health conditions and look at the symptoms and see if any match your description. I would be interested in what you find.
