Horrible sharp pain in leg. Inside of right leg. Comes and goes. Only lasts a few seconds. No other symptoms. Not swollen, not warm. Could it be dvt?

Leg pain: The pain you describe is not typical for dvt, it sounds more like a musculoskeletal symptom. Having said that, one can't be sure what's going on from out here and it would be a safer course to see your dr. And get checked. ...Read more

Causes of altered sensation of fullness or heavy in left leg and arm other than als? I'm scared. Male 20 yrs. Had symptoms for about a year with no change.

I was diagnosed with bfs normal emg only minor fasciculations and symptoms are twich spread random and legs pain can it be als?

I was diagnosed with bfs normal emg only minor fasciculations and symptoms are twich spread random and legs pain can it be als?

Unlikely: The diagnosis of bfs is a diagnosis of exclusion. If you have been diagnosed with bfs then ALS should have been ruled out. The two are unrelated and one does not develop into the other. It does not mean you can't develop ALS like at equal probability as the general population. Is there is a significant change in symptoms reevaluation would be indicated. ...Read more

I suffer from extreme anxiety. I googled ALS symptoms because of my thigh twitching and now I'm worried because my legs feel fatigued. Anxiety do thi?

I suffer from extreme anxiety. I googled ALS symptoms because of my thigh twitching and now I'm worried because my legs feel fatigued. Anxiety do thi?

Hey, tough guy!: Everybody's thigh goes twitchy occasionally. I think it's from a nerve cell or two dying off the muscle getting extra-sensitive to circulating acetylcholine. Nobody knows or cares. If it's your tongue or if you're suddenly not keeping up in sports, you might worry. ALS isn't treatable anyway so it doesn't matter. Get on with your life. Best wishes. ...Read more

20/m left leg & arm been feeling different than my right, maybe weaker, for about a year. Can still do everything normally. Possible that its ALS & im just ignoring it? I'm so scared. Normal nuero exam

It sounds: Like your anxiety is getting the best of you. There is a normal exam, you are young and probably right handed, still without motor deficits. This has been extrapolated into death by als. It's not, but talk to psychiatrist, make sure you are sleeping ok. Good luck. ...Read more

It seems that: You need to consider talking with a psychologist. Anxiety can lead to physical complaints. Here's a blog that explains how some people take things out on their bodies.

Male 20 yrs old. Left leg has felt weird for a year. I'm terrified its als, but I went to a neurologist 1 week ago and he said everything looked okay..

Other issues: I would not think at 20, after assessment by neurologist, and isolated single limb parasthesias would be als. There are many causes and ALS is one of the more rare causes. You could have back issues that are mildy irritating a nerve that may be giving you these feelings. Do you have any close family members with als? Any history of continuous head injuries? If no to both of these, less likely. ...Read more

Twitching body wide mainly in legs for 19 months. Clean EMG (just fascias) at 12 months. Clean clinical at 15 months. Am I now in clear regarding ALS?

Twitching body wide mainly in legs for 19 months. Clean EMG (just fascias) at 12 months. Clean clinical at 15 months. Am I now in clear regarding ALS?

Twitching: I can't comment on your ALS probability but your neurologist can. I can say that muscle twitches can be related to low magnesium levels. Please see a nutritionist or naturally-oriented physician. He/she can test your magnesium level and suggest supplementation. Jigsaw brand magnesium is a good brand if available. Too much of some types can cause the runs. Peace and good health. ...Read more

I been twiching for 6months. No weakness. Rare myokymia on eyes. I have permanent myokymia on my leg (35 hz and 1sec durat.) emg/MRI clean. Possible aLs?

Clean EMG: Is very helpful. Generally ALS will have a markedly abnormal EMG with lower motor neuron denervation. There will also be clinical evidence of denervation. Myokymia is a nuisance but not dangerous. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
