    ALS Fear. I see atrophy all over the left side of my body

    I had been telling you guys that for the last 4-6 weeks my left foot was feeling super skinny. The shoe would always feel loose no matter what shoe it would put on. This is the same leg that has had the tingling for about 5-6 months now. I just took this picture and it's truly concerning

    ALS Fear. I see atrophy all over the left side of my body

    Thanks guys, I will definitely have to do something about it. To me I am still convinced that I have atrophy , I am going to have to wait until I see the neurologist and go from there. The Prozac is definitely helping with the anxiety, but I am still convinced I have ALS. I can't believe everyone is telling me they don't see it in the pictures, because to me it's clear as day. Even my foot feels super skinny, my shoe is super lose on it

    ALS Fear. I see atrophy all over the left side of my body

    Thanks for the feedback guys, I don't know I guess I am going crazy with this. I am seeing atrophy all over but everyone including my friends and family tell me otherwise. I was doing well for a little bit, but I am still comparing both sides all the time.

    Unexplained weight loss

    The reason I was asking it's because my anxiety caused me to lose 10 lbs in 5 weeks without even trying then I started eating like crazy to gain it back and couldn't and it wasn't until my anxiety came down that I slowly gained all the weight back I really thought that it was atrophy and muscle waste showing up on the weight scale as I was losing muscle but it was anxiety. The other thing is I was eating Ankit during that time as well, and I was still losing weight

    ALS Fear. I see atrophy all over the left side of my body

    I posted pics of the left side and the right side for comparison purposes.
  9. As a lot of you guys know I have been dealing with a lot with my ALS phobia for the last 5-6 months. I have had twitching all over my body for 2 years now and since November I have been feeling a lot of different symtoms that are very worrisome. Ever since all this started I have noticed that my foot is twitching 24/7 and the areas where o think the atrophy is taking place are twitching a lot more than the right side of my body. Here are a few pics comparing the left side to the right side. On my left leg you can clearly see it , the same with my left hand where the ligaments stick out a lot more including my wrist bone and the muscle right under my pinky finger. I don't understand I had an EMG done a month and a half ago and I passed it. All these areas were tested. I thought it was supposed to be the gold standard , so what was missed? I feel so hopeless now, hopefully atrophy doesn't mean ALS and it could be some other type of condition. But I doubt it. There is also twitching in the problem areas non stop. I don't see my Neurologist for another 5 weeks. But I don't feel confident about this at all. https://ibb.co/DpfDYbG https://ibb.co/C0YQxh8 https://ibb.co/G5NHm3W https://ibb.co/RyX0RJ2 https://ibb.co/1rBq3Pm https://ibb.co/TcrRHV0 https://ibb.co/FBG5FJK https://ibb.co/3hC8mQv https://ibb.co/jrPhjbP https://ibb.co/vZrJ8LF

    I am having a mental breakdown (ALS Fear)

    Thank You , that was very insightful. I am definitely not failing, I can still do a out everything with that thumb. The only thing that I noticed is when I type with both thumbs on my phone . The left one which is a little slower than my right one, is not as fluid. They did test a bunch of muscle groups and they did test exactly where all my problem areas are, so that gives me a little bit of a relief. They actually pinched me exactly by that thumb , which is an area that I have been looking at for a while now. They also tested where my skinny foot is and my leg. Which is exactly what has made me so confused lately. They have obviously tested all these areas, and this would have been 2 years after my symtoms started. So you would have thought that if something was wrong it would show up on the test. I am trying to convince myself to just trust the EMG, but unfortunately until I see my doctor in 6 weeks I don't think I'll be completely at ease.

    Yeah that is it, that's great. That's a tough position to play.

    You are right, what I am describing are the ligaments.

    That's a good point. Not sure if those are the ligaments or bones then. I was assuming they were bones but not sure now.

    Yeah, I might try to do that. No I don't feel weakness. At least not noticeable to me. The wrist bone looks the same for now. It's just the one that conenct it to the thumb that sticks out a lot

    I see him in 6 weeks , I wonder what he will say then. Because it seems more profound now that it was 2 months ago
