If u have peripheral neuropathy & demylination on ncs does this point towards, or away from, als and ms? I've been terrified that I have als or ppms.

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Depends

Peripheral nervous system demyelination is not common for either MS nor ALS.
Nonetheless, if you have had NCS/EMG, it is assumed a doctor ordered it, so perhaps a discussion with the physician would be appropriate.
