Injury and ALS

Postby Xina535 on December 4th, 2014, 11:59 pm

I was not sure where to post my question, but I would like to reach out for opinions on this Topic.

I understand that muscle-skeleton injuries do not lead to ALS, but then why have I heard of cases where someone gets an injury, goes to get it fixed, but it does not repair and then after ruling out nerve damage, they get ALS diagnosis. One famous case is Peter Frates. I have heard of this Happening with other athletes.

Are These just pure coincidences? Or....if someone has ALS in their Body, could an injury/surgery to repair the body part, Kind of Trigger it or allow for the ALS to Show up? Like, the person's Body has a Point of weakness that Needs to repair and rebuild, but it won't rebuild.

Not sure if I am explaining this right...

Professional athletes have so many traumas and have such a weird lifestyle taking by the way so many supplements possibly causing neurological poisonong in order to enhance their performance... so we can not realte to their stories unless we are in the same boat.

The injury wouldn't cause it. It just might be discovered at that time

Ok, thanks for the opinions. I thought about the athlete thing too, about their performance enhancing stuff and the impact on their heads/brains. I just kept wondering, if Peter Frates would have injured his wrist 1 year later, would the ALS have shown up otherwise...

I am worried that when I go to get my wrist surgery to get rid of this cyst that my hand does not go back to normal and then ......well I don't want to say it.

There's no reason you won't heal. You don't have ***
