Stop searching for general medical information online. Reliable sites include Mayo Clinic, and Johns Hopkins. Doubt any possibility of ALS at your age. Instead, contact your doctor, get examined, check blood studies for electrolyte imbalance, and metabolic issues. Physical therapy may be a worthy option.
