Re: Status ...

I feel like I see atrophy in forearms and left calf.

My feet burn and my hands and feet have tingling feeling.

I still go to the gym each night so who knows. Not sure if I am tired faster or the cramps make me feel so sore. Very strange.

All of this and I am enjoying each day and planning as though gonna live forever.

Hope we both get well and live forever.

James

Re: Status ...

Do some loght weights every night to excersise my shoulders, not heavy excersises.
My left shoulder got the most atrophy!
Sometimes feel if the joint is pining and going to get sort of out of joint.
Should I not first become or loose power before waisting?
My arms feel sometimes like shaking inside.
With the waisting Im sure my power is less.
My arms also getting tierd easy.

Glad you got this attitude to just keep going
Proud of you
Hennie

Re: Status ...

Usually it is a sudden inability to move a muscle. Possibly not able to turn keys, etc.

How long have you had symptoms?

James

That would be a very slow progression. Hope it continues that slow until we are 100 years old.

Re: Status ...

Glad to hear about you out there living life.

Hope you have luck with your new neurologist. I have seen three. No more for me.

Just curious what medicines you are currently taking.

Best wishes,

Jamed

Re: Status ...

Well every 6 months that pass is good. Hopefully about another 100 of them pass and they still tell us to come back.

As long as no muscle failure that is good.

I have had a tightness in my throat for over a year. I also have a nearly constant sore throat. Sometimes I feel like not swallowing right. All of this related to nervous system like the burning in my limbs.

Today is still a good day.

Take care,

James
