Oh i also didnt mention that in the past year i have developed somewhat of a slurred speech..My s's are not clear..I ve read that is the case with bulbar als!
please any input will be helpfull!
Given your age, I HIGHLY doubt this is ALS.
I would recommend a Neuro consult for an assessment and testing.
thank you so much for your answer..I will see a neuro soon.I just hope it not ALS...
Its indeed very scary as i have read incidents of people acquiring it before the age of 25..
That surely scared me...i pray its not that..
In my opinion, I don't think it is; you just don't fit the profile. For instance, your twitching is all over and not really localized, plus the twitching stops with movement. The problem is DEFINITELY Neuro though and should be investigated as soon as possible.
thank you!!what if the fasciculations are brief yet fine..i cant really see them but i can feel them..I read somewhere tha this is an indicative of as!!is tha true??are fine twitches that cannot be seen but only felt bad?
Yes, ALS usually present with muscle twitching, but the twitching is usually localized in one area with muscle atrophy and weakness. Your twitching sounds more like BFS (Benign Faciculation Syndrome).
You did state you really don't exercise, so the weakness in your legs could just be related to inactivity.
Please consult a Neurologist to help you sort out what is going on.
