Can ALS cause muscle soreness and mild pain in my bicep. I have twitching there too. Could the twitching and soreness be just from a pulled muscle?

Your age is younger than any described case in history of what is referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease or the classical form of ALS. If there's no obvious reason for the soreness in the biceps and it persists you should see your doctor. But rest assured the diagnosis will not come back ALS. ...Read more
