And the question is?: Is it ALS?-- No
Is it life threatening?- No
Is it going to stop?- They always do at some point
How can I make it go away?- Well, sometimes you can and sometimes you can't
Should I go to the ER? No, but if it's still there another day and it's bothering you set up an appointment to see your doctor. Some blood work, a quick physical exam and he may be able to give something to slow it down.
