Have you been tested for auto immune disorders, your thyroid and lyme?

Odd, my dr said with ALS the twitching is all over the body? Actually two drs said that.The dr today did say there are no sensory things with it as you mentioned, ie pains, etc.. Still I cant help but worry.

I prob see about 30% of of my twitches the others are the little deep ones that feels liek there are bugs moving around in my muscles

My other dr did say that usually with ALS the twitching is in later stages after atrophy, but in some cases it can be the first symptom

I have not noticed any weakness, I lift the same weights at the gym with no bigger struggle so I assume that is a good sign?

I wonder if stress could cause the tendens to get stiff hence cause joint cracking. I am grasping at straws. The best bet would if it were all stress! A lot of this started after my dad was diagnosed w end stage PC -he lived 2.5 months after diagnosed. However, I was having some of the pains before, like burning/nerve feelings and the eye pressure pain that I get.
