Default Re: Food options

Thanks all.

The coughing is odd as it often happens when as I put food in my mouth, not while I'm swallowing. Maybe it's saliva starting to run down my throat, or part of the overactive gag reflex. I don't know. I've discussed it with my doctor and he didn't seem alarmed by it. We haven't discussed a peg yet, but I'll probably bring it up at my next appointment at the end of July.

The bulbar onset question is one I had when diagnosed. However, I have full body fasciculations and have had them for almost 3 1/2 years. I just never thought anything of them until the speech issue arose. That's essentially why my doctor doesn't think it's bulbar onset.

What is this barium swallow test?
