    Issues with Jaw muscles and popping TMJ

    Neudexta

I might have started to have some swallowing issues before starting Neudexta(very minor), they are gone now. I had...

    Diagnoses confirmed ALS/MND

    So, I went to see Dr. Hiroshi Mitsumoto at the New York Neurological Center at Columbia University. He agrees with my neurologist and said it is "likely" that I have ALS/MND. This was really upsetting news. He did say that it looked to be very slow progressing so hopefully he is right. He also...

    Diagnosed with ALS?

    First off, let me say I am in no way a hypochondriac. I have high cholesterol and acid reflux disiese but other than that, I hardly ever get sick. I do have a pain in my side for over six years but the doctors couldn't find anything so I just live with it. I am 44 years old and fairly athletic...
