Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a rapidly progressive, fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells (neurons) in the brain and spinal cord that controls voluntary muscles (muscle action we are able to control, such as those in the arms, legs, and face). ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, after the famous baseball player who was diagnosed with it. ALS is a type of motor neuron disease that causes nerve cells to gradually break down and die. In the United States, ALS is sometimes called motor neuron disease. ALS is one of the most common neuromuscular diseases worldwide, and people of all races and ethnic backgrounds are affected.

ALS full form is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. It is a neurodegenerative disease that affects motor nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It is a progressive disease as it gets worse over time and causes the death of motor nerve cells (neurons) that control the voluntary muscles. Eventually, the motor nerve cells can no longer send impulses/signals to muscles and muscles begin to waste away or decrease in size (atrophy). It affects the ability of brain to initiate and coordinate muscle movement and the person may not speak, eat, move and breathe properly. ALS can be of two types, sporadic and familial. Sporadic is the most common type of ALS in the U.S. Familial, as the name suggests, is a hereditary disease as it passes from one generation to next generation. The symptoms of ALS may vary from person to person:

  • Muscle cramps
  • Muscle twitches in the arm, leg, shoulder or tongue
  • Tight and stiff muscles
  • Difficult chewing or swallowing
  • Difficulty breathing and speaking
