Rebekah, most of the cramps are in his arms and hands and fingers. Occasionally he gets them in his feet. I know there are other issues that are treatable with symptoms similar to ALS so that's what I'm hoping for.

Not yet. He hasn't even gotten called by the hospital to schedule his EMG. His follow up is scheduled for 5 weeks so I'm trying not to worry too much. My hubby looked at als.org, the site I used and says he absolutely does not have ALS since he only has one of the symptoms listed. It's going to be a long 5 weeks but I can say I think you all know what my birthday wish was yesterday when I blew out the candles on the cake.

Hoping and wishing for the best. Take a deep breath and concentrate on the kids and that will take you mind off your troubles for a little while.

Good luck.

Well his EMG is scheduled for 3/19! Can it be any further away! He also needs to have more blood work done. As a little bright note, he's been on this certain medication for over a year for his lactose/stomach cramping issue and he today, looked up the medication on-line and gosh darnit, one of the side effects says muscle twitches!!!!! So, that gives me a little hope. I'll continue to pray!

I tell you...anymore, the side effects on most of these current drugs seems worse than what they are supposed to help!

Wow, who knew that lactose meds could give you muscle twitches. Hopefully he'll just need to change his meds after all of the tests are run.

My hubby and I were watching a few commercials for meds the other day and we were shocked at the side effects. You'd be better off with the symptoms!

This is so true! My husband and I try natural rememdies before we start any new prescriptions. It's brutal!

Anyways, you have prayers coming to you from MA. Good luck with everything!!!

Pam,

My thoughts and prayers are with your family and the doctors to find the answers.

First of all, did you put your husband on the cancellation list for his EMG? If he can drop everything and go, he can probably get in sooner than 3/19.

Second, did you call the dr with the drug side effect news? Truly, PQ, there's no reason to wait on that one. Have him call the dr or better yet, print out what you read online and take it to him. I had terrific jaw pain that turned out to be a little known side-effect of Fosamax. I marched in and handed it to my dr after which he thanked me and took me off the stuff. Bingo! Pain gone. Now I take bone health pills and lots of calcium instead. Drs can't read everything on every drug. It's worth the effort NOW. Why go through all the tests, worry, etc., if it turns out to be something simple like switching a drug?

Continued prayers and hugs.
TR

Yes, good advice Truff. He's planning on calling DR. to discuss the pill he's on and the possible side effects. Didn't think about EMG cancellation list, I'll tell him!
