Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Yes I did
nice to meet you Lucy
why are you worried about ALS?
is it one arm only?
ALS would be all over
I suspect this could be a pinched nerve in your neck causing this
this often causes arm symptoms like this
possible then yes
I would get an EMG
this test will show both pinched nerves and rule out ALS
you're welcome :)
any more questions?
I doubt it but there is a rare chance
would you mind rating me positive before leaving?
I greatly appreciate it Lucy :)
