Default Re: Need some advice on ALS/Lyme/Mold..Hopin al and wright will give wisdom

The reason your neuro is confident that you don't have ALS, is because the EMG indicates you don't have it. You have said previously that you have slowed conduction (which indicates a loss of myelin) and slowed conduction does not happen with ALS (it might be seen in later stages of ALS but not in the beginning stages). I bet that the EMG is also showing that your sensory nerves have been affected, which again points away from ALS. I'm also fairly confident that your clinical exam doesn't indicate ALS.

You will reinnervate and I'm sure you already are. As soon as they get your Lyme's under wraps, you will stop denervating and demyelinating and then you will be on your way to recovery. In the meantime, keep a positive attitude.
