23 /m my left arm, hand is fealing a little weak also my leg, foot, I also have body twitches, the weaknes comes and goes! Can it be ALS, ideas?

For the foot...: You may have had some sort of injury which caused the bruise. If there was some damage to a joint or tendon sheath, this could have led to the formation of a ganglion cyst. This would explain the lump and the pain, but there are many other things that may have happened as well. See a podiatrist for further diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
