some good news for facial twitchers & EMG stuff

Postby dwl on June 12th, 2003, 1:47 pm

My lips and eyebrow have been twitching for 3 months. I spoke to my neuro today & he has NEVER seen als cause facial twitching.

I also asked if an emg is done "too early" could it miss als. He said that it usually picks up problems well before they cause any symptoms but that nothing was 100% (doctors always say that). As an example, he said that patients on steroids often have a mild neuropathy. An emg will pick this up at a very early stage even though the patient might not have any symptoms.
