It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see a doctor, preferably a neurologist. Wish you good health!

So far, it appears that you have benign fasciculations and nocturnal myoclonic jerks. There does not seem to be any reason to diagnose "ALS or PD". Suggest a second opinion from an experienced local neurologist.
