I guess I will start at the top; first off, I do have serious health anxiety that I’m in treatment for.
About a month ago I was awoken in the night with a really bad calf cramp in my right calf. At the time, I didn’t think anything if it and went back to sleep. I noticed for a week or so after that my right calf was just overall sore. I got worried about a possible blood clot and went to the ER. They did an ultrasound a bunch of labs and said it was fine and said it was probably Achilles tendinitis and sent me on my way. About another 2 weeks later I went and got some tattoo work done on my left calf, and noticed my calf twitching right after. I figured it was just from the tattoo and ignored it. Days later I still noticed the twitching and then noticed it in my right calf as well. I went to the neuro who scheduled an EMG for a few weeks out. Since then, my calves have been twitching 24/7 with pops all over my quads, glutes, knees, and feet with my legs feeling really heavy and weak. This worried me and sent me back to the ER. They said it seems like a classic case of sciatica and refered me to a chiro. This morning I woke up and my right bicep was twitching and I had some pain in my right shoulder blade that was radiating down my arm. I’m getting terrified of ALS, and having to wait a few weeks for the EMG has been torture. I haven’t been able to sleep and I’m noticing twitching all over but the calves have been literally non stop for almost 2 weeks now. I’m only 31 and have a wife, a child, and another on the way. I’m just hoping someone might have some information while I wait for this EMG.
