Middle-stage amyotrophic lateral sclerosis symptoms

As the disease progresses, symptoms become much harder to ignore. Weakness and muscle spasms continue, and some muscles become paralyzed.

Symptoms at this stage of ALS include:

  • Drooling or choking while eating because of weak swallowing muscles
  • Trouble breathing, especially when lying down
  • Uncontrollable laughing or crying without reason
  • Falling and being unable to stand back up
