I am Junior Jack Payne. I was diagnosed with ALS in 2020. In the outset, I experienced symptoms such as trembling hands and a weak right knee. Eventually, the right foot dropped. In 2021, a specialist inserted a stent in my leg as a treatment for foot drop; however, it was ineffective. By the end of 2022, I am no longer be able to stand or walk. In 2023, the ALS is all over progressing with muscle atrophy.
