Hi All, I am really hoping someone can help ease my fears. I am relatively young, a 24 year old female. About a month ago I started having very strange feelings in my left side, it was up kind of high about mid way between pelvis and shoulder. It was like a spasm or something. I could see the skin move and it almost felt as it did when pregnant with my son. This normally seemed to happen when laying on my right side. However, like a lot of other people I typed in spasm/twitch into google and then I had all of the ALS stuff come up. It scared me as when knew a family who lost their son to this horrible disease. So after reading this it seemed that I started noticing other little twitches, in the legs, bottom, never the feet or hands. Today and yesterday I noticed I REALLY notice the spasms or twitching when I bend over. Its always on the left side same spot. Just curious as if to ALS would first present with spasms in this area? I do not have a regular doctors appointment scheduled until june, and due to finacial problems do not know if we could afford the doctor right now. If I needed to, I suppose I could, but jsut curious if anyone here could ease my fears? :) LIke I said its always in the same spot, until the past few days when I found all the ALS information, and now it has seemed more noticable. But the side is almost a constant twitch lasting for minutes at a time, and normally either in a resting state, or while bending over.

Thanks in advance for any help..
