Emma--

Please keep in mind that health anxiety is often caused by health problems. The fact that you had to deal with swine flu, the pandemic that had much of the world freaking out, can certainly raise your awareness to your body and the things that can go wrong with it. Also, it is quite possible that the flu or something else is causing some type of complication in your body and/or immune system. But that does not mean it's ALS. Twitching can be caused by literally hundreds of things and sometimes the doctors simply don't know what's going on. But the inherent good news in that is that no one seems to think it's ALS. I'm not saying that anxiety is causing all of your problems, but it can certainly add to them and exacerbate the ones that are already there. Hopefully you can get these things figured out with doctors.

Best of luck,

Andy
