Fasciculations can be seen early on in ALS, however weakness in one limb such as hand weakness or foot weakness is much more common.
Issues with coordination or dexterity in the limbs is also common.
Fasciculations can be seen, but are more prevalent as the disease progresses.
yes, but the fasciculations may be generalized from the begining or isolated?
the fasciculations are generalized or isolated to the affect group muscle?

As the disease progresses (and all of the muscles become weakened), they will be everywhere.
