You say your wife is real stiff, does she have trouble opening her hands, after they are gripping something tightly? Does she have twitching?

Also, you didn't mention atrophy? does she have any atrophy.

One thing that sticks out to me is something called Isaacs syndrome..i was tested for this, as this sounds like alot of the symptoms. It's a possiblity and it's treatable. Also, it would cause an abnormal EMG.

ALS generally, does not get better, so i would bet about 99% she does not have ALS. In ALS, the nerves die, once they are dead, they don't come back, hence, you don't get better.

Sounds like an autoimmune disease or something related.

No story is too long, we're all going thru what you've been thru. Ask anything you want, say anything you want, we're here to support you.

Good Luck!
