Calf fasciculations - benign or early ALS?
I saw a 45 year-old colleague who became aware of calf fasciculations and was anxious that he may have ALS. He exercised regularly and his fasciculations seemed most prominent after exercise. He was otherwise asymptomatic, and his clinical and EMG examinations were unremarkable aside from calf fasciculations. How can I be confident that his fasciculations fall into the category of benign fasciculations, as opposed to early ALS?
