Hi, I am posting about symptoms that I have been seeing in my father over the last 2 years.
He is 73.
He started having trouble swallowing his food about 2 years ago. He seen several doctors, and had a scope done, and it was brushed off as aging. He was told to chew his food better, and...
I hope this is in the correct forum. My dad was recently ( 1/4/18 ) diagnosed with ALS at University of Utah. My mother and I are most likely in denial, however, something just does not seem right from all of the research we have done. I would like to have some insight from...

Blessings to all of you!

I have been having problems for 9-12 weeks now......My current symptoms are:-
-Having problems swallowing.
-Bad mouth, facial, jaw and throat pain.
Diagnosed June of this year. I was on the verge of a fresh start, looking forward to growth and love and sex and happiness. A few months later, walking is pretty hard (standing is a bit harder), my left arm is weak, my left-hand grip strength is for crap. I'm falling apart, twitch by twitch.
