I am very sorry. Conjugal ( marital) ALS is rare but not unheard of as I expect you were told. As you have gone down this road before you have ,unfortunately, an idea of your path though every PALS is different. Even in FALS families like mine people present and progress differently. I am sure you knew to go to a neuromuscular neurologist and to get a second opinion
sorry to hear of your diagnosis Gracey, and the loss of your husband. i was diagnosed in October with Bulbar onset ALS. Got a second opinion at University of Michigan. I too yawn wierd and have found my grinding/clenching has gotten worse. my mouth guard helps but my jaw usually hurts on one side during the day.
