ALS symptoms tied to long term effects of Rheumatic Fever as a Child?
My husband had two severe bouts with rheumatic fever as a child.  He is 68 years old and has recently been diagnosed with probable ALS.  Is it possible that his ALS is related to having severe rheumatic fever as a child at a time when antibiotics were not well developed.  Could he have this infection again and could it be causing brain damage related to motor neurons?
