  3. The onset of ALS may be so subtle that the symptoms are frequently overlooked. The earliest symptoms are obvious weakness and/or muscle atrophy. This is followed by twitching, cramping, or stiffness of affected muscles; muscle weakness affecting an arm or a leg; and/or slurred and nasal speech.

The parts of the body affected by early symptoms of ALS depend on which motor neurons in the body are damaged first.

  12. Thanks LARRY, I was fortunate to find a VSO whos office is in the same building as the VARO. He knows the personell and can walk in and get answers.
