Question Weakness or twitching first with ALS?

I have recently been under a lot of stress and anxiety about my health...a hypochondriac. Now I'm convinced that I have ALS even though I'm only a
28yrold/F. I know it's till possible to get at my age, but not likely. I was wondering what type of weakness is associated with ALS. I feel some weakness in my left arm and leg, but don't know if it's all in my mind after reading the symptoms. But I have been having twitching all over my body, and was wondering which comes first...the twitching or the weakness? and would the twitching be all over with ALS or only in the affected muscles? Thanks for any help!
