    Questions about bulbar onset

    Like many here, I come seeking advice. I have read all of the stickies and tried my best to "research" what I can about ALS. (I am a junior high science teacher, and the lack of answers and knowledge about the pathogenesis, etc. is baffling to me. But I should keep this short). Sorry). About...
