Not big: This is not the usual presentation of ALS.Unfortunately, I can't give you peace of mind because there are other disorders that can present this way.Some are simple like mineral or vitamin deficiencies.Some are due to nerve/central nervous system problems.Regardless, this is serious enough that I would recommend seeing doctor ASAP for proper diagnosis.Only then can you get treatment/peace of mind.
