    Early Symptoms?

    Hello all-

    Over the past 3 weeks I have had some weird symptoms. It started with a numb feeling in both of my arms from the elbow to my fingers. The numbness was not the feeling like a limb fell asleep (pins and needles), but more like I had been given a mild anesthetic. After about two weeks the numbness has mostly gone but both of my forearms get fatigued really easily, almost like I have done an extensive workout. My triceps tend to feel overexerted as well. Sometimes I get very mild pain in my wrists. I get some bouts of numbness every now and then but they come and go. I don't really have any loss of strength as far as I can tell, nor do I have any noticeable loss of fine motor skills. I went to my GP and he thinks it is a pinched nerve in my neck...does that sound right? I'm sorry to be posting in this section but I am concerned it may be early symptoms of ALS. My grandfather died of ALS when he was 58, so it immediately came to my mind. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.
