Did you have an MRI of your spine and other studies to check for ALS--Lou Gehrig's disease?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
no, what are the symptoms?
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I found it. I don't have other symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 9 months ago.

You don't really need all the symptoms but what you have are enough as far as I'm concerned

At this point you need to see a neurologist for a full evaluation and workup for ALS

Please let me know if you need any more information

OK--agree with you on that part

And you aren't being charged at all unless you rate my service positively

But let me opt out and see if another expert can help you
