Do muscle twitches start before weakness in ALS ?muscle twitches for past 12 days.arm feels weird and that's arm w twitches but twitches other places

Stress will worsen: The stress is not the cause, but could make the symptoms seem far worse. Real question involves why you are experiencing the problems you describe.
