    Bi-pap, breathing issues and sinus.

    I have noticed a few changes with Steve regarding his sleep and his breathing. Today I had to insist that he actually sit down and talk to me. Apparently, the reason he is waking up so much at night is because he gets sinus congested and can't breath through his nose. He is on the Trilogy. We...

    Advice needed

    I should begin by saying that I am 23 years old and thus the possibility of me actually having ALS is, as I'm sure you know, very remote. That being said, I have a few concerns that I hope can be dispelled by your feedback. Here are my symptoms: Muscle weakness in my arms. I can no longer do...

    Can ALS / FTD account for all these changes?

    My sister just left after a long visit, and I find myself just astonished at the changes in her over the last six months. She is much weaker and must use assistive aids to walk in the house or have someone support her if she walks outside, and after a mile or so of walking, foot drop kicks in...

    Warning...can't find a title but just rambling

    I know that everyone is dealing with so much so I am hoping that something from my rambling below helps someone else so I don't feel so guilty. I apologize ahead of time but I don't know of any safer place to share my feelings. I hate this disease for taking my husband from me before he is even...

    He's mad at me so he won't eat or drink

    Sunday he had a bad day - I guess he did because he cried but he won't tell me why he cried. I have no clue because he will not talk to me. I came home from work today and all of the bills were on the couch. Well clearly he didn't do that on his own. He had the caregiver get all the bills...
