Hello... I understand your concern. I need some more information please.
Please hold on
Thank you for getting back with the requested necessary information.From your symptom analysis and correlating it with the history that I have gathered from you I feel that the possibilities are -1.Idiopathic Peripheral neuropathy. Need not worry anything serious neurological going on please.I suggest you take neurovitamins (B1, B6, B12) available as tablet Neurobion Forte - taken one tablet once a day for 3 months please. You can buy it online here -https://www.amazon.com/Neurobion-CLASSICO-Tablets-Vitamin-Booster/dp/B003KI53T22.Benign Fasciculation Syndrome. Benign fasciculations are common. Despite the favorable prognosis of benign fasciculation syndrome (BFS), patients are often anxious about their symptoms. In a recent study published in 2018 - it was quoted that - BFS is a benign disorder that usually persists over time. Commonly associated symptoms include subjective weakness, sensory symptoms, and cramps. BFS is usually not associated with pathologic anxiety.I suggest you take OTC vitamin D and calcium supplements on a regular basis.I will send a link -https://www.amazon.co.uk/Magnesium-Supplement-Vegetarian-Nu-Nutrition/dp/B01N295CCYThis ships to UK and you can use 2 per day.3.Drug or antibiotic induced idiosyncratic reaction.
4. Radiculopathy or pinched nerve along the course.5.After ruling out physical causes like this, I would put stress and anxiety as last possibility please.May I suggest you discuss these possibilities with your primary care physician and get yourself appropriately evaluated and managed please.

Yes madam I am sure.
I agree but this is not suggestive of ALS.
Soreness does not mean ALS.
Weakness is predominant.
No it might be just fatigue and BFS or even stress.
You should be happy it is not ALS.
I did not understand your question.
Then by this time you should be having perceptible weakness.
8 weeks is fair enough time to show weakness.
Weakness is like the daily chores that you were able to do effortlessly would require help or extra effort.
Yes it could be - but not ALS.
Your doctor might perform some special tests like antinuclear antibody and anti double stranded DNA, apart from the routine blood test workup.Treatment includes non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, immuno-modulatory drugs and biological agents.
Please go through this useful link -
Yes please I am.
Fatigue is different, weakness is different.
As I said daily chores would be difficult to perform. For example you cannot climb steps.
No. Not without choking.
Please give it sometime it will go away.
Your symptoms are not suggestive of PID.
But then the pain would be very localized and excruciating at times.
Yes in that case if position is causing aggravation of pain then it may signify radiculopathy or pinched nerve.
It can be neuropathy and spinal compression above, you need a MRI of the spine.
Yes please in that case you may need to go private.
Yes it is possible to have multiple spine compressions.
No ALS for sure.
We have already discussed that neuropathy can cause this. I request you not to ask repetitive questions.
Cervical spine stenosis can cause dizziness. Pain anywhere can cause nausea.
Wish you an early recovery.
You are welcome.
