    Just diagnosed with ALS

    Want to know what things I can do to slow progression. I play drums and guitar, the ALS so far hasn't affected that. But I noticed slurred speech around Christmas 2017. Thought that it might of been a stroke, went to the doctor all they found Prolactenoma Tumor on my pituitary.
