Remember ALS does not come and go, even at rest. You're muscle twitching doesn't sound like ALS related muscle twitching. My moms twitching looked like little creepy crawlies under her skin AND she could NOT feel them. ALS muscle twitching shows up in the affected body part first, almost always after noticable muscle atrophy and severe weakness. Weight loss is usually present due to loss of muscle.

I have MS. I have random muscle twitches, different parts of the body, fatigue and weakness. This sounds like more of a possibility. Remember there are hundreds of things that can cause symptoms like you are having. I would recommend repeating your MRI (with and without contrast) in 6 months if the problems still persist. Also, get a doctor that will acknowledge that you are having ligitimate issues. It helps to journal your symptoms, when they come and go, etc.....

ALS is rare and MS is managable. I was 36 when diagnosed, I have 2 kids and work full time. Try not to let anxiety get to your own health advocate. Wishing you the best :)
