Default hi can someone help fibromyalgia diagnosis

I am 40 years old...

sometimes i would wake up w/ an almost burning sensation in both forearms and my hands would feel stiff...then as I got up for the day it would go away...now sometimes during the day my forearms just feel sore or like a little burning like i used my muscles too much...if I climb stairs or bike my thigh muscles feel sore too but walking im fine and no other symptoms ...do you think I have ALS? btw its the top and under of the forearms

Sorry about your fears, but you do not have ALS. Just try to relax and not worry.

Well that's not nice at all. I am sorry you are having such a hard time.

The good news is: It really does not sound like ALS . The symptoms are wrong.

The bad news is: You need to see your Dr or a neurologist to get the real diagnosis.

It sounds like you are stressing yourself out trying to figure it out. And that will not help you. Please see a doctor.

BTW. Welcome to the board.

Glen

I agree with Glen, you really need to see a neurologist and find out what is happening. But the good news is the symptoms are wrong for ALS.
