first off i always get fatigue and time to time twitching. couple weeks ago Started with what may have been a virus and felt sore muscles in shins. within a couple days the soreness move to arms thighs calves, it then turns to achy not sore to touch , i also have bone soreness on pelvis which could be lyme as well. my leg muscles get fatigue after stair climb. This turns into deep bone aches almost like arthritis at times as well. I uped my magnesium and now im experiencing muscle twitching all over my body when at rest. Thoughts? going to see a neuro.
GregK is absolutely right. Reread his post.

Concerning your post:

Fatigue and achy sore muscles have nothing to do with ALS. ALS involves motor nerves, not sensory nerves. The first sign of ALS is a totally paralyzed (limp) muscle that simply doesn't work anymore. It doesn't feel tired or achy, it just doesn't move.

Twitches are a sign of a gazillion things, including subconscious anxiety.

If I were you, I'd scratch ALS off the list, breathe a sigh of relief, and go see the neuro.
