  1. A friend of mine caught nail fungus from a pedicure. It took months to get rid of it. That crap is pretty resilient. Just keep taking the medication as prescribed.
  2. Muscle twitches are AFTER clinical weakness. They are very fine and often are not seen.
  3. I have been a long time sufferer of this condition. It started in my late twenties. It comes and goes. My last outbreak, I freaked out due to my age, and Googled my symptom. The search came back with prostrate cancer. I ran to my urologist and he asked me if I searched the Internet for my symptoms. I said that I did. He rolled his eyes and said that in his entire career with all of the prostrate cancer that he has seen, NONE of them presented blood in sperm. He told me that all of the cases for blood in sperm he has seen have been benign. He also said that the condition is common.
  4. Not ALS. Weakness with ALS is complete failure, not a feeling of weakness. As Bobnat stated, pain is not a symptom. Also twitching with ALS is very fine. In most cases not even detectable. One last thing, we are not perfectly symmetrical. My left hand is smaller than my right.
  5. Hi Holls, I’m sorry that you are going through this, but you said it yourself. It hasn’t changed in size. No change in size, no malignancy. I have several of these myself. Have had them for years.
  6. Stop the poking and prodding! You’re only going to make the area tender and painful. Everyone gets constipated periodically. As the others have posted, I too recommend taking something to loosen things up a bit. Relax, you’re fine.
  7. @Lolo95 twitching with ALS always comes after clinical weakness and atrophy. Also, ALS twitching is so fine, most patients don’t even notice it.
  8. I have know a few people suffering from chronic dizziness. They all were cured with the eply maneuver. Give it a try. It’s just a few head adjustments that clear out particles in the inner ear.
  9. You can easily have a condition where the nerves are compressed on both sides. There are three nerve branches feeding the sciatica. They come through L4, L5 and S1, if I recall correctly. Anyway, any anomaly with the discs between those vertebrae can effect either one or both sides.
  10. Classic BFS. Read this:
  11. Excellent point. Sudden and severe clinical weakness is key. Thanks for sharing Marc!
  12. BS. Mine has been much higher than yours on one visit. They didn’t want me to leave the office until it was sub 140. Doc said white coat + panic attack.
  13. A friend of mine had appendicitis. She had nausea with lower abdominal pain. It wasn’t constant for her. No one here can diagnose you. I’m just saying it’s more likely benign and you should ask your doctor.
  14. Very much doubt it’s cancer, but it very well could be your appendix. You should talk to your doctor about it.
  15. Three years twitching for me as well. Hot spots are the arches of both feet. Calves, thighs and buttocks. Also torso when I stretch. No weakness. My doctor told me that anxiety is triggering them. He told me to ignore them.
