    Ongoing dysphagia

    Dear All, Firstly thank you for taking the time to read this post. It all started in April this year. I had a raging sore throat which wouldn't subside. One day the whole left side of my body went completely flacid. This all went away and left me with with phlegm stuck in the left side of my...

    Can I Play A Useful Part at this Site?

    As I understand it, the disorder, MND, is "characterized by rapidly progressive weakness, muscle atrophy and fasciculations, spasticity, dysarthria, dysphagia, and respiratory compromise.

    Undiagnosed VENT :-x

    Still on the testing merry-go-round. I got the results of my esophageal motility test today, and I can add "unspecified dysphagia" to my increasing list of documented symptoms. So far they have ruled out MG, MS, thyroid & Lyme disease, and pretty much any auto-immune disorder. I have had...

    Questions

    Dr. Lewis Rowland at Columbia in NYC

    HI ALL, Anyone been to see him? He founded the ALS Center there. I posted the "Dysphagia" post last night freaking out about blowing food out of my nose after eating last night - first time ever. And I got scared all over again about my twitching meaning something more than just twitching. I...
