The disease goes by many names, but in America, ALS is commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease (after the hall of fame baseball player who contracted it). No matter what you call it, ALS is a seriously debilitating, progressive condition that destroys the lines of communication between nerves and muscles.

Since the neuromuscular system includes such a wide range of nerve cells, the damage of ALS is likewise widespread: little daily acts, both conscious and subconscious, become increasingly difficult. Not only will the body struggle with more complex motor activities like lifting objects, but even the simple act of breathing can be interrupted.

ALS is frightening and tough to comprehend, which can make a diagnosis even more difficult to handle. Understanding the disease begins with breaking down the complicated title.

A (amyotrophic): this literally translates to “no muscle nourishment.” As the muscles lose nourishment, they become weaker, and muscle strength in every region of the body begins to suffer as the muscles waste away.

A (amyotrophic):

L (lateral): refers to the sides of the spinal cord, where the disease attacks the nerves that feed and control the muscles around the body.

L (lateral):

S (sclerosis): scar tissue that develops in the place of healthy tissue. In this case, the damaged nerves at the sides of the spinal cord give way to hardened tissue, which stops the nerve signals from traveling to the muscles.

S (sclerosis):

In the end, the nerve damage, scar tissue, and muscle wasting lead to paralysis of the body, by severing the neuron pathways between the brain, spinal cord, and the muscles. But even though neurons in the brain do suffer, the physical senses and mental comprehension are not necessarily affected.

The damage occurs in the upper and lower motor neurons, which are nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that command muscle movement, but are not in charge of other sensations like hot and cold, pain, pressure, or emotional response. One of the most tragic elements of ALS is the mind often continues to function well but the body just won’t respond, and so expression and communication becomes frustratingly difficult.

ALS is a fairly rare disease — it only affects about three in every 100,000 people each year. Given that it’s relatively uncommon, it mimics other diseases, and is difficult to predict, there is also a good deal of mystery involved.

However, experts have uncovered some facts that can help to determine ALS risk and help spot the first symptoms.

Theoretically, anyone could develop ALS, but it typically manifests in adults between the ages of 40 and 70. Some of these adults will develop symptoms quickly, while others begin to show signs that worsen gradually.
