    EMG, NCV, MRI just a few things that you will likely experience if your doctor thinks ALS is a possibility!  A diagnoses of ALS is usually a long road.  Symptoms of ALS mirror many other diseases and it’s difficult to determine what is really happening in the body.  Doctors spend a considerable amount of time ruling out other possibilities prior to making a final diagnoses. Many of the test they conduct are specifically looking for symptoms of ALS, and are not a “test” for ALS.  This websites provides information about some of the tests conducted and what information they provide. If you know of other resources please share! http://www.healthcommunities.com/als/diagnosis.shtml
