Hi.Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you
This finding is consistent with disc disease in the cervical spine.
You need an MRi of the spine so that you can get the correct physical therapy.
Such disc disease is common, and can be reversed.
If you leave it go, you will develop a more chronic problem and might wind up having surgery.
This is the real problem. You don't have ALS, but you do have a problem that needs immediate intervention.
OK, let me know if you have more questions.

It does not show anterior horn cell neuron disease in the spine.
It shows peripheral damage to do radiculopathy which is from disc compression of the nerve.
These symptoms are all part of the same issue.
ALS is not in the picture.

You have to do that on the rating scale.

What is the question?
You need further work up, but not for als.
Have your neurologist order an MRI of the cervical spine.
After examining the hand.
Disc disease can cause pain and fasciculations.
It depends on the physical therapy assessment and what the therapist tells you.Until then take it easy.
Six months to a year once the cause is removed.
Yes this is an indication for the correct manual medicine program. It is not any where near to a surgical problem.
It is not anything else. We have been over the EMG.
You don't have als.
However, degenerative disc disease will become a big problem in 10 years if you do not address it.
You need to see an MD specialist of physical medicine and rehabilitation. This doctor will give you a variety of modalities to build up the spine and get rid of any associated pain.
They are minor enough to be from nerve irritation from spinal degenerative disc disease.
Yes that is correct.
I have no idea.
Just find me by request in the future on a new post.
