Default Re: Dysarthria only confirmed symptom advice

Hi there,sorry your here with this problem.
If emg was done on bulbar area and it was ok then thats a very good thing.
We can't diagnose as were not doctors but from knowledge and my own experience its possible it could due to umn desease.
With pls(bulbar onset) or pseudo bulbar palsy an emg would be clean.
I am pls limb onset (14yrs) it has spread to bulbar with .....slurred speech,problems chewing and swallowing.
It can take 3-5yrs for a comfirmed diagnosis as they need to rule out lmn development.
Try not to worry too much at this point.
