    Dirty EMG/FALS after 2 years of BFS?

    Hi, I understand that you're not doctors, and I sincerely appreciate the effort with which you try to answer the posts here while dealing with this terrible disease (as someone who has lost a father to ALS, I'm unfortunately quite familiar with it).

I thought hypernasality, but I tried the mirror challenge...

    Does this sound like ALS?

    Hi, I apologize in advance for how long this is-just want to make sure I don't miss anything. I have had breathing issues for a few months now but thought nothing of it until later. It basically feels like my breathing muscles aren't strong enough and I am not getting enough air. This is...
