  1. According to my blood work my numbers were fine (this was done 2 days ago). They tested for nutritional deficiency, thyroid, A1C, and inflammation markers. Everything was normal. They didn't test magnesium though, so maybe I should ask about that. I want so hard to believe that it's all my anxiety. This last year has been hell for that. A year ago I got bells palsy, at the same time my husband went into AFib randomly, as we are both dealing with these 2 things we also came down with covid. We were hit pretty hard and at one point he passed out on me and I had to take him to the ER. I developed long covid that attacked my gut and I couldn't eat much for almost 2 months, during that time our house was hit by a tornado (no damage at that point thankfully) and our fridge went out (because why not) About the time I was getting over it my husband had his heart shocked back into rhythm and 2 days later woke me up in excruciating pain and I took him in to the ER for what we thought was kidney stones. Turned out it was kidney clots and he was ambulanced to a bigger hospital to be treated. I was told there it was a miracle that the clots went to his kidneys instead of brain... I could have lost him. A month later our dog got sick and died. These are just a few of the stressors of the last year. I started having shoulder pain due to my job and developed some nerve damage in my face after bells. Everything Keeps happening on my left side. I don't know what is going on. It's so frustrating, and one of the reasons I am fearful of ALS.

    Hi. I'm a 37 year old mom of 2 (8 & 14) I'm lost in the ALS rabbit hole right now as well. I went to the doc for leg stiffness and a multitude of other things. They want to get my anxiety under control first so started me on meds, but my muscle twitching has become worse, waking me up at night, and its all over my body, though really likes to happen in the leg I've been having problems with. 5 days after my appointment I came down with covid for the 2nd time. My anxiety is through the roof, I can't eat (haven't had much more than a couple bites in days) my legs are cramping (both now) and twitching feels like it's everywhere. I am convinced it's ALS, since my blood work all just came back clean. My anxiety is through the roof, and I'm having breakdowns several times a day as I think of having to leave my children. My daughter is scared something is wrong and has heard me loose it to my husband. She came to me crying because she doesn't want me to go to Heaven yet. This is gutting me. I want so bad to get better. I hate this and the complete and total fear I have of this being ALS is crushing me. I have a follow up with the doctor in 2 weeks, but have a note in for a phone call tomorrow about my labs and fears. I don't know what to do. It just breaks my heart to think of having to leave them and not being here as they grow up. We are so very close. I feel like I'm losing my mind. I feel broken. I just don't know how to deal or what to do. I've never posted on a forum before so if I'm going about this wrong I'm so sorry.
