Neuropathy (potentially CMT) and fasciculations

Hi,

I'm an 18 year old female.  I have high arches and hammertoes (onset when I was about 12).  I also have a sensory neuropathy in my feet...  I've been seeing a neuro, he did nerve conduction tests and said it was not Charcot-Marie-Tooth because the tests came up normal, but frankly I don't really believe him because I know some forms of CMT come up with normal nerve conduction tests.  He also said he thinks I have hereditary sensory neuropathy.  Anyway, I still think I have CMT.

I've been having fasciculations for a year and a half now, with no weakness or anything.  My neuro said it's from my neuropathy, but every time it happens I worry I have ALS.  They take place all over my body though, and randomly, which I've heard indicates it's not ALS?  Also, given my age, how long this has been going on, no family history, and other nerve condition, does it seem at all likely that I have ALS?  I'm going to see another neuro for a second opinion on the CMT thing.

Thanks so much for your help
Devyn
