Doc mentioned ALS today. Please answer


Today doctor mentioned ALS. Arm extreme weak. Cannot use some fingers or grip with hand. Arm atrophy. Twitching in hands. At first thought nerve
damage from Mylegram and CAT scan. Still might be. Can't have MRI because of pacemaker. Said my tongue didn't twitch which is good? Seeing
another Neuro tomorrow. Please any input helpful. I'm senior citizen .

Thank you
