No one in my family had an ALS scare or ever had ALS. I am worried that if my neuro exam is clean, I won't believe my doctor that I don't have ALS. I probably won't have time to get an EMG/NCV test before the wedding. I have been trying all of the strength tests, like...balance on one leg, foot strength, balance, etc. I am able to do all. When I walk it feels as if the floor is moving or that my body is forcing me to take bigger steps than usual.

I am not experiencing foot drop, or dropping things. My right arm feels week, but I can do everything. I can even flip a pen up in the air and catch it. My muscle twitching is in my right arm, right leg and stomach.

Do I need to worry about ALS at all?
