Hi Wright,
my appt got bumped to Febuary 18th...now i am having tongue issues...no twitching or swallowing problems, but some speech problems...it feels like my tongue is too big for my mouth, but when i look at it, it looks normal...i did ask the neuro if he would get me some PT...if i can build up my calves and ankles...that would certainly help me in many ways...

Default Hello Siuska

I know people hate to hear this, but your perception of your tongue might very well be anxiety. Anxiety can cause all kinds of weird things to happen to our bodies. I know that the more anxious I used to get, the weaker my legs felt; I could actually feel them getting weaker (second by second) the more I worried. Hang in there.

P.S. Peripheral neuropathies cause denervation, and therefore can also cause fasics in the affected muscle. Just thought you might want to know.
