Can trigger finger along with all over body twitching and numbness/tingling be ALS?

I have been having all over body twitching that I usually can't see, but feel.  Now I have been seeing it a few times in my eft interosseous muscle. Ihave been on and off again having tingling and numbness of hands and feet. My left middle finger feels stiff, but I can still move it. I am scared that it'll stop working and that I have ALS.  The finger also has pain as well when I flex it.  I am wondering how long can a person have fasciculations before it progresses to weakness.  Can a person having trigger finger be a symptoms of ALS?  Can a person have weakness without atrophy?

Rather than try to self-diagnose or go on forums like this to worry yourself to death, see a doctor.  If your doc thinks it's a problem you'll probably be referred to a neurologist.  Right now you're hypothesizing all manner of horribles and that just makes you have two problems, the physical one and the mental one.  So see a doc.
