Re: Newbe here with questions

The majority of folks with ALS have weakness and atrophy prior to muscle fasciculations. However, literature says it is possible to present with fasciculations. My mother had weakness and major weight loss before the fasciculations began.

I'm 38 and have been experiencing constant fasciculations. My EMG came back normal, but I still worry. I have your same concerns. I wish you the best.
