overconsuming fear of ALS

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,  I have come here to see if anyone has the same fears as me.  I cannot help searching the internet for answers and in doing so I have made my fear much worse.  I started to get cramping in my calf and thigh about 2 months ago and went to the drs.  Then stated to get twitching in the same area and started to google …...fatal!!!  npw convincing myself I have ALS and cannot focus properly !
