    Good news is "Now We Know" but the bad news is ALS... So it seems my WWing days are numbered, and the list of unfinished projects is too.

    Bill, I am so sorry to hear that. I pray that there is some sort of a positive treatment.

    I am so sorry to hear this.. Seems you have a very positive attitude, which is good. I have not kept up with the medical progress for ALS. So all I can offer in that regard is prayer which I do offer you.

    Sorry to hear that Bill, but please get a second opinion. Doc's sometimes like to label stuff just to move on.

    Yes Bill, I second Steve's recommendation. I had tingling fingers (still do) preliminary diagnosis ALS. Somehow I have put a permanent kink in my nerve so my left hand always feels like I hit my funny bone. Prayers being said for you my friend.

    Very bad news, Bill. I hope you keep us informed as to your treatment and progress. I understand that Riluzole is a drug used successfully to slow the progess of the disease.x

    Sorry to hear this Bill. Will keep you in our prayers. I agree with getting a second opinion, perhaps even a third.
