Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Message Board

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) Board Index

I posted a few weeks ago and switched to the MS board. Now I think ALS is still a real possibility.

My mom is 67. She had the muscle weakness in her arms. Muscle fasciculations. Loss of use of her left hand, now loss of use of her right. Her Brain MRI showed some MS plaques however because of the muscle atrophy and fasciculations the Neuro can't make a call between the two. He wants to conduct another MRI (because the ER doc didn't use contrast). He also wants some more extensive EMG test.

I just don't know what to think. She is showing symptoms of both. Is it possible to have both MS and ALS. He says it is so rare.
