I couldn't find a message board for lou gehrigs , but the last 2 days I've become increasingly sore all over, my muscles hurt, and for no reason, I havent worked out except for some light weightlifting...

places i feel tightness in muscles: started with my left hamstring/both forearms, hands (between thumbs and index)/right side of my throat/now its in my calves

Hey billo

Welcome to the board! Have u seen or consulted a doc about these aches yet? Since it's only been 2 days, maybe give it time to prove out NOT to be other things first. Maybe a virus or other less severe illness. Is there any sort of history with u'r family and ALS? I guess i'm wondering why u'r thinking ALS after 2 days of achiness? I'd certainly watch and call u'r doc if this continues. U know u'r body better than anyone, so if u'r feeling something is wrong, then by all means u should be in touch with someone who can help. Best wishes to u and please let us know how this goes for u.

Hi Billo,

  My mom had ALS and passed away in 1979.  Here is a site that may help you out. Good luck and keep us in the loop.   Dale
