Hi
It is Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis , do a spinal tap to confirm
I am really sorry
Good Luck

hi,
it seems more of ALS,but the history does not confirm it.
It needs further investigations like lumbar puncture with CSF examination.
Other possibilities like hormonal imbalances ,severe vitamin D deficiency etc also should be kept in mind.
thanks

in my opinion it is more relevant to ALS you need to start with EMG before going to spinal tap or lumbar puncture..
Feel better soon ,sorry for this.
