Through some miracle, I got to see the premium ALS specialist in the Northwest, Dr. Kimberly Goslin. She met with me and did a new exam, an EMG. Think needles poked in various parts of your body, then electric current is introduced to enhance the experience! The idea - see how my neurons were transmitting impulses. Patients with ALS have a weekened neuron system and a test of electrical response may provide data.

There it was again! I am an exception
