Please help does this sound like ALS?

Hello one night suddenly my arms and legs both went numb and were shaking and has involuntary shoulder and arm movements. This numbness lasted for a weak now has subsided. But now my arms legs feet and hands become incredibly weak,tingly, and sore? I'm not sure what's going on it started with the arms and now it's spread down to my legs when I wake up in the morning it's a lot worse and very stiff and the pain is awful.. also a new symptom has been on going I've started having muscle twitches or facilitations in my legs mostly but some in my arms too.. when I'm sitting still it feels like theres a tingling inside my muscles and the just always feel heavy and useless. They feel so stiff and tight when I try to move them almost like they're always tense..
I'm really scared I don't know what's going on it's been about a month and is getting worse and worse a few days ago my vision got very blurry but it came back to almost normal again..
doctors did blood tests all was normal with B12 and that and I got an EMG and that came back normal too I'm very worried and don't know what's happening.. please help

Hello Ashes,

I am sorry for your symptoms, but they sound nothing like ALS. Have you had MRI of head, spine and cervical yet?

Take care,

James
