I am wonder if the 'twitching' symptom of ALS is a constant twitching of one or more areas or if it is a random sporadic twitching throughout different areas of your body.
For about 6 months I have had random twitching, more frequently in some areas (left thigh, etc.). I have also had periodic muscle pain - like a charlie horse in one spot on my left calf and one spot on my left thigh. This comes and goes. There is also numbness on the left side of my face but no loss of muscle movement. 6 months ago I saw two neurologists who did an MRI then basically told me I was crazy. Too young for ALS they said (I'm 32) and my symptoms didn't warrant additional tests.
Anyway - just wondering what the 'twitching' in ALS is really like so I can (hopefully) cross it off my list of concerns.
