Brief Answer: Related to reducing nerve conduction Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for writing back The first sign of ALS is often weakness in one leg, one hand, the face, or the tongue. The weakness slowly spreads to both arms and both legs. Trouble using your hands and fingers to do tasks. Over time, ALS makes it hard to walk, speak, eat, swallow, and breathe. These problems can lead to injury, illness. Muscle twitching. To find out if you have ALS, your doctor will do a physical exam and will ask you about your symptoms and past health. You will also have tests that show how your muscles and nerves are working. Hope this answers your query. Regards.

Brief Answer: Mentioned above, please visit Neurologist. Detailed Answer: Hi, as mentioned above , the signs and symptoms of this particular disease have no definite sequence or what will appear when. I would humbly request you to consult a Neurologist to clear the doubts. ALS per se is very difficult to diagnose. It is good that you have thought about this.
