I have Fibromyalgia and Peripheral Neuropathy that is becoming more frequent and seems to be advancing.
A few years ago, my left arm became paralyzed for 2 1/2 months, but fortunately the nerve regenerated and I regained use of my arm. In the past month, the numbness has become very frequent, and I know I can no longer brush aside the symptoms; it seems obvious it's likely to happen again at any time, and will just be a surprise which part of my body will be affected this time! YAY.
At any rate, I thought it was time I started talking to people with similar conditions, and although I don't have ALS that I'm aware of, this forum seems to be about right, or a good place to start.
I hope to gain more knowledge about ALS and other motor neuron diseases, and also hope to be a good friend and listener on the site.
When my tongue (yep, my tongue...so many fun surprises with this thing!), became so numb this morning I could barely talk, I knew it was time to interact with others, as it's beginning to scare me. Don't like to be scared or even say I am, but there it is.:?:
I live in Arizona, USA and look forward to getting to know you all.8)
