I haven't had any problems with developing sentences or typing words. My speech problems have been limitted to my voice getting horse and raspy. I have shoulder issues big time! I also have spasticity in my legs, neck and back along with cramping. My calf muscles have a constant twitch to them and lately, my hands have been getting fatigued while I tune pianos.
Wynn, yes I have problems in typing too ... interesting that you identified using the correct finger on the wrong hand. I often mistype a complete wrong word, but it always has the same number of letters as the word I meant, and some related sound. Like: I will want to type "last," but will type "best" instead.
My eye problems are double vision in reading and a rapid deterioration in my sight since the ALS began. I assume the poor eyesight is age, but the double vision is troublesome.
