Back from neuro

Postby Bibi on August 28th, 2014, 3:30 pm

Today i saw A neuro at A Big hospital. He made A short clinical , The knee reflexes and babinsky and made me Walk on toes and heels . He looked for fascikulations in my thighs and Tried to provoke Them but there where not any. He saw The fascikulations in my left foot and asked what he could do to reassure me and asked if i Want an EMG . I asked what he Would recommand and he told that EMG often shows anormalities , even in Healthy People so it is not always The Best ting to do for reassurement but he could see How nerveus i am so Would recommand it anyway. He told me that he did not Think there was any signs of ALS and after 4 months there Would be signs if i had it.
I am kind of relieved but still nerveus for what The EMG Will show , and i have to wait for it up to two months.

That is great news Bibi! Sounds like your neuro has informed you have nothing to be nervous about. Instead of feeling nervous and you should do something to celebrate this weekend :D Take care.

Dear Bibi, congratulations!! I hope that this really reassures you and you don't sit and wait there for the EMG....
But I know this is a hard thing to do...I know from myself. But it is time to relax..

Don't do the EMG - if your doctor doesn't think there's a need, then there's no need. Get on with your life already - you're fine.
