Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Board Index

Im 17 and scared myself to near-sickness trying to self-diagnose myself with ALS. I got the odd muscle twitch every now and then, and after reading about ALS the next day it got amazingly worse, along with general shakiness. Since I've started back at college this has generally gone away, apart from the odd twitch and tingle, which always become more frequent when I think about them.
I have also been feeling general weakness in my limbs, although I only ever feel this if Ive been doing some exercise such as lifting heavy objects, and it usually occurs after my muscles have been aching.

However, I too have a full muscular range, and I believe the "weakness" feeling you are suffering from may be from the work you were doing. As far as I know, if you are suffering from true muscular weakness, you will find it difficult/impossible to move in ways you could before.

I'm seeing the doctor anyway tomorrow to see what he says.
