  1. That was beautiful honesty. Thank you for sharing. It feels just like the life I’m living right now. 🥺😥
  2. Thank you for the helping me. I hope I can do the same for someone one day. Bless you! ❤️
  3. I agree. His response did freak me out a little. I’m trying so hard to feel good, but I really do have something physically wrong with me. I’m normally positive, upbeat and happy, but I can’t deny my real physical symptoms. They’ve been constant for a year now. 🥺🥺
  4. Thank you for reaching out. So sorry for the people you mentioned. I’m caught in this heck of a place consumed with my anxiety. I have good days where I’m back to myself and then I have bad days where I wake up with calf spasms, funny numb sensations and twitching that sucks me back down the ALS rabbit hole. I need to have an EMG but I’m absolutely petrified. What’s worse is the neurologist’s office is 3 to 4 weeks out from scheduling appointments and I’m deathly afraid to schedule. I pray daily to be healthy but something is really wrong with my body. I don’t know how much longer I can take it. I still walk for exercise and lift weights a few times a week, but the symptoms I have are concerning. I’ve kept an open mind thinking the ailments I feel could be IBS, a pinched nerve or a million other things, but I can’t stop thinking it’s really ALS and one day I’ll wake up and not be able to move. 🥺🥺🥺
  5. I need to think about anxiety meds. I tried them a very long time ago and took them for many years. Eventually came off. The side effects, I hated; weight gain, being one. Is there anything natural I could do instead?
  6. Thank you. I’m trying so hard. ❤️
  7. Thank you for the response. I’m literally in a hole. Your words have helped me so much. I felt the same on the ALS site thinking maybe I hadn’t explained my symptoms correctly. Maybe it wasn’t pain / maybe just spasms and my mind said pain. Ugh. I’m trying so hard. I’m re-reading your responses to refer back to. Thank you. ❤️
  8. I’m so sorry you had to experience what you did. Thank you for the thoughtful responses you’ve given me. I can remember probably 1.5 to 2 yrs ago that my foot hurt so badly that I felt I could barely take it. I seriously thought I had an injury from my workout class, so I just pressed on. The foot issues got better after months, then my calf became affected on the same side of my body. In your opinion, would I be seeing more symptoms of ALS by now? So engulfed right now and no apt with neurologist yet.
  9. I hope you’re doing much better! I appreciate your time and advice. I’m trying and will overcome this. No more ALS forums. I’m focused on prayer and healthy lifestyle choices. ❤️
  10. Thank you so much. I’m not going back to those sights. The more I learn the deeper the hole becomes. I took myself off the email list. Anxiety is the worst. It’s stolen so many good days from me, but I’m determined to start living without this dark cloud again. ❤️
  11. I’m so consumed with fear that I have ALS! I’ve been on the ALS forum- they were so kind to me but asked me to leave. I feel like a selfish jerk for being there in the first place. But, I truly think I have ALS. I’ve had foot pain, calf pain, abdominal pain, spasms and twitching for a year. No other problems that I know of except I feel the top of my abdominal muscles have atrophied. I want to see a neurologist but I don’t know when- my Dr. referred me. I’m also scared to go. I feel I might die. This has taken all my joy.
  12. I agree with all you said, but my pain started before I googled ALS, but I’ve always had HA! I can go down any rabbit hole there is with HA! Why does my brain think I have the worst illnesses? It’s a curse!! I saw my GP several times... He just checked for arthritis, vitamin deficiency. But mainly perplexed at my symptoms. I also had a CT with contrast scan of my abdomen. All looked normal. I never picked up on ALS fears until I read about twitches (2 months ago) and suddenly realized I’d been having them. Of course now I noticed them all the time. They’re not as bad as they were but I still have them daily. I asked to be referred to a neurologist and my GP said he would as this has been going on for at least a year. Wouldn’t I most likely have more debilitating symptoms if this were ALS after at least a year of spasms, pain? 🥺🥺 Can’t enjoy life or plan for the future like this. I feel so self indulgent and miserable like this. 🥺

  14. Thank you so much. I’m so sorry you had to deal with this type of anxiety. I pray I will find myself healthy or the anxiety will let go. I’m working hard to combat it. I appreciate your words so much! Hugs to you!
  15. Thank you for taking the time to reply to me. It’s so appreciated. I just can’t understand what’s causing my very real symptoms and I’m beyond scared to see the neurologist. This has overtaken my life. I feel like there’s seriously something wrong with me and I wait everyday for failure to kick in. It’s killing me and has stolen my joy. I still put on a happy face but I crumble inside constantly. 🥺
