My ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) symptoms started out with a foot drop on my left foot. From there my left leg lost all muscle tone and then the entire left leg muscles were gone. Also my fingers and thumbs contract at times. Left arm was losing muscle tone too. I was given medications to slow down the progress of the disease, and I resorted to a wheelchair.
