Hello, I'm new to this site. I've been diagnosed with PLS. I'm currently having severe speech problems, mild aspiration, and occasional chocking. My legs are starting to get weak. I'm having a very hard time with stairs. I started counseling today as this is an awful lot to deal with. My Dr told me to avoid stress. I've been so busy since I've been diagnosed that I feel like I'll never get caught up with everything. I'm still working but, I'm not doing that well. Attendance is poor. I find myself having to take extra breaks because I'm exhausted all the time. By the time I get home my feet and legs are cramping up really bad. I have a lot of muscle spasms in my face. I don't look at people when I speak to them anymore. Which makes trying to understand me even harder. Not sure what else I'm supposed to write on here.
