Hello Curedmaybe

It sounds as if the problems with your muscles stem from the problems you are having with your spine. Osteophytes, herniated disks, spinal stenosis are all things that can cause all kinds of problems with peripheral nerves and muscles.
I'm not sure of the terminilogy that you are using with your EMG, so I can't comment on them. Typically what's talked about with EMG's is acute, ongoing denervation, which is indicated by fibs and PSW's and chronic denervation, which is indicated by large MUP's.
I or no one else on here can diagnose you with anything (your neuro will have to do that), but it sounds as if your problems are most likely not due to ALS.
