Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Board Index

Went to Italy in November. Came back with very violent rash (looked like scabs) on legs, arms and chest. Then began experiencing numbness/tingling in both feet and hands in December. Got MRI/CAT scan. Ruled out for MS by neurologist. After the numbness and tingling went away, began experiencing tight feeling of "bands" around both elbows with muscle fasciculations in triceps intermittently and generally feeling crampy in late December. Would come and go. Went to second neurologist in early January after experiencing those symptoms for about two weeks - sent me for an EMG/NCS - normal in both arms. She ruled out ALS based on clinical findings and studies because I was so distressed about this possibility. Now for about two days, I am experiencing weakness/feelings of coldness in my left hand/stiffness. Sometimes, experience the same in my right hand but not consistently. When I take an Ativan, symptoms appear to lessen. Does this sound like ALS to anyone? I scheduled myself to go to an Neuromuscular Center because the pain I experience plays havoc with my mind. THANKS!
