ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.  The disease causes the victim to have stiff muscles, muscle twitching and gradual worsening weakness. The victim may also have difficulty chewing, swallowing and eventually, breathing, according to reports. The disease is named for 1939 New York Yankees baseball player Lou Gehrig and was also the diagnosis for Stephen Hawking.
