    als symtoms

    i have had twithing all over for about 3 months and problems swallowing salavi for 2 months.clean emg after 2 months and a abnormal ncv test which showed slowed conduction of motor nerves.i now have weakness from time to time in my legs and my last visit to the neru he said thet i have decreased reflex in my arms so i was wondering since he said that he doesnt know what it is and that als didnt fit my age which is 34 m if anyone out there might have an ideal.my b_12 was low normal and my magnesium was just a little bit low cpk was normal as well as the heavy metal test.i have also had ringing in my ears since this started any one who might could offer some advice would be great.

    Hi zac. I am sorry you are going through this. Low magenesium can cause twitching. Did the doctor advise you to take some?
