Important issues: An MRI is not necessarily conclusive for ms, lesions can be seen with migraine, prior trauma, hypertension, diabetes, etc. Get this diagnosed and treated if appropriate. See a neurologist. If you do have ms, should be on a medication. Pts with ms are inordinately sensitive to heat exposure, which can cause pseudo-relapses with symptoms, and can enhance fatigue, but should not Prohibit you.

ALS Diagnosis: Als is a very difficult disease to diagnose. To date, no one test or procedure to ultimately establish the diagnosis of ALS is identified. It is through clinical examination and series of diagnostic tests, often ruling out other diseases that mimic als, that a diagnosis can be established.
