Does Als make you fell like you have a lump in your throat, or your throat is closing? This has been happening to me for a week. The more I extrenuaite my neck muscles the worse it gets. I have twitches all over my body (even in my stomach, tingling at times in different parts of my brain, muscle and joint pain, and stomach pains. (The twitching has me scared about ALS. I have had and MRI of neck and thoracic region and Brain, CT of Thoracic region and brain, Rhemutology blood workups and CBC's + thyroid test. Time for an EMG and I guess another Endoscopy and rectorooter. I mean colonoscopy. I hope all is well. It just feels like my throat is closing. I can swallow ok, I am coughing a little, my throat is itching (I assume b/c of the coughing) and my food seems a little (1x or 2x) harder to go down. Thanks so much.
