    Is this ALS or MS or what else could it be??

    Hey docs I’m a 22 year old male and I’m otherwise healthy but over the last few weeks I’ve noticed that I’m losing muscle definition all over my body like my neck muscles are getting smaller and my collarbone sticks out more especially on my left side. I have slight weakness in my left arm but not tingling or shaking any where. I did have gastro a week a go so I was thinking it could be Gullian Bare syndrome? But that has even weakness doesn’t it and also tingling which I don’t have? Also I’m having....

    Should you get diagnosed?

    My father in law has end stage PD but my wife refuses to be checked. Does being diagnosed early help or cause other problems?

    Confused on not to worry or not

    So about 4 weeks ago I was at a grocery store with my sister when all of a sudden she was like, "what the hells wrong with your eye?" She told a picture and my right eye was dramatically dilated. I went to the doctors and set up appts. I went and saw an eye specialist and my eyes were perfect, so the Dr ordered and MRI and an MRI with contrast. About a week ago my left eye dilated largely. My MRIs came back normal, I just have enlarged arteries on half of the posterior of my brain. I've....

    What causes Neuropathy in teens?

    I am a fifteen year old who suddenly got neuropathy in my hands and feet overnight and im scared. It has been 4 months and it hasn't gone away. My feet and hands burn, feel super sensitive and feel tingly. I am a vegan and had been told that my b12 levels are low, so i have been getting b12 shots taken regularly at the doctors lately (a shot a week, for 2 months). however, the b12 levels aren't rising. On the other hand, I have a feeling that this nerve issue might of been my own fault since....

    Indentation in top of my head

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this, but I have recently noticed a slight indentation on the top of my head that I don't think has been there before. It's kind of tender to the touch. I had by husband take a look and he said the skin around it is kind of red. I haven't had any recent head injuries, but I have been getting frequent migraines so this is kind of freaking me out. I will definitely be seeing my doctor soon (not as soon as I'd like) but just wanted to....

I usually experience this pain while I am trying to fall asleep. I have also been constantly waking up in the middle of sleep. I usually go to bed at 10:30 PM and I usually first wake up....

    Shaking

    So I'm a 19 year old guy and ever since I was a little kid my hands have always been a little bit shaky, people would always notice. And sometimes it randomly gets really bad, I will just be holding something and no matter how hard I try to hold my hand still I keep shaking like crazy and it isn't a huge problem. But it's a bit annoying especially since the people around me who notice start freaking out and stare at me weirdly making a big deal out of it. Anyways my question is, does....
