I'm sorry Tillie. I do not mean to be rude by asking Gooseberry a question and do understand she is dealing with her husband.
I won't ask anymore questions.
Thanks to everyone for responding and I will try to get my anxiety back under control.
Thank you Vincent.
You are right that I do "feel" that everything is off, but am still drinking/eating and breathing despite the unnatural feeling.
Gooseberry- this doesnt sound anything like how your husband started?
I am hoping that because its been over a year and I've had a mirad of random symptoms, that it points away from ALS (especially bulbar). I posted back in Feb 2014 with throat and tongue issues (tongue feeling weird, GERD, tight throat, etc.) and I either got used to it or it was simply...
I've been having a lump in my throat (above Adan's apple) and sore throat the last few days as well and my tongue just feels so goofy. I can talk fine, but at rest it feels like it's sitting too far back in my mouth and making my gag reflex sensitive. I also got diagnosed recently...
Thank you Tillie. Again I really appreciate it.
I'm still up 4:30am battling with my jaw and tongue.
So painful - can't get my tongue to not feel tense along with muscles under chin.
Guess it's back to the dentist to see what else can be done.
Thanks for responding Barbie. One last question- I swear I see tongue fasciculations when I self check during TMJ relaxation techniques. Would bulbar als have clinical weakness in tongue with slurring of words before the fasciculations? My TMJ symptoms have come on pretty severe and freaked me out.
Let me start by saying I appreciate you taking the time out respond while dealing with your health.
I'm having trouble determining if my tongue and jaw issues are TMJ related or something worse. 27 yr old female - relatively healthy.
Would bulbar onset present with the back of tongue...
