Emma dear,
We are not thinking you are making this all up. We are just giving our advice based on years of talking with others just like yourself who are afraid they have ALS. The symptoms you describe are just different than what we normally see. That is why everyone is saying they think it is not ALS, but only a Doctor can really tell you that, after ruling out everything else.
If you want more confirmation then there are more tests that can rule out other things. I would recommend, since you believe it may be ALS, that you go to an ALS clinic where the Doctors specialize in treating ALS patients all day long and tell them your fears, and that you want all the test run to rule out anything else. There are Nerve Conduction Studies, Spinal Taps, many other tests that may narrow done whatever you have going on in your body.
There is bound to be a major clinic near San Diego where you can get help.
We hope for your sake that it is not ALS. We are standing with you in this fight, not against you. Have peace my dear Emma.
