I just wanted to apologize for this in advance im just looking for peace of mind. A quick introduction. Im an 18yo male with no other diagnosed illnesses who used to play sports at the junior national levels up until pandemic hit. I decided to focus on my academic career then. I started working out in 2022 and built a lot of muscle up until a bicep strain in October. I never returned to the gym but regained almost full strength. fast forward to February of 2023. I noticed one day that i could not bear any amount of weight on my legs. My knees seemwd to give away forwards. Same day i noticed that i could not flex my right calf for more than a second. Itd just ball up as jelly. I was able to flex it 2 days later but between those 2 days my whole life changed. I noticed my thighs and buttocks went soft. I couldnt sit comfortably on hard surfaces. My legs seemed extremely stiff and worn out. Then started the twitching. It began in my left calf and moved to both legs. Soon arms, neck, shoulders, everywhere. I had blood tests that came out negative for anything thyroid related or anemia/thalassemia. Thats when i knew this was bad. I knew i had to consult neuro. In between this i had my electrolytes checked and i was dehydrated and started on ors therapy, vitamin tablets. It seemed to provide a temporary relief. At this point i was concerned about an MND. The neuro consult took place 2 weeks into my symptoms. Along with the twitching, weakness, atrophy around my legs. I told the doctor about a tremor on my wrists, specifically my thumbs. He checked my strength, excellent. He checked my reflexes, 2+, no clonus and concluded that i was dehydrated/symptoms were a result of a possible post viral syndrome. (I had the flu for 3 days, 2 weeks prior to my symptoms) so after this i stopped worrying about MND. Its been a few weeks now. I havent noticed failure but i have been living extremely poorly compared to how i was before. This illness has completely destroyed me. I cant walk up or down stairs without my legs trembling. I can’t clench my teeth and look up without a tremor. I occasionally have burning sensations on my feet. Its not a painful sensation its just slight heat. I also feel feverish towards night almost everyday. Im just asking if this seems familiar in any way. Is this how the disease starts out? Its been more than a month now. I do have good days but im much much weaker than i was before.
