. I am 23and got diagnosed with Bulbar ALS of Jan 2021. For months before this I was unable to swallow my own salvia, could not eat, drooling, gagging, shortness of breath. In march of that year I was finally able to drink water. I was using swallowing techniques formSpeech therapy, is it true that it strengthens your throat muscles? I was able to eat by august and have been eating for 8months. Can it get better?
