My husband has been diagnosed with bulbar palsy. Wondering if there are any new treatments known or if anyone has had stem cell treatment for this disease. He has trouble swallowing and it takes him a long time to eat meals. Is anyone aware if heavy mercury levels can cause this disease?

Mercury poisoning can cause neurological problems. If you are concerned ask for blood and urine testing. If you thinking of having fillings removed my advice is don't. The reports back from this seem to be that it did not help.
Stem cells are in trial and the jury is still out. I would STRONGLY advise you not to pursue stem cell treatment that you pay for. There are a lot a scams out there waiting to prey on the desperate

I am sorry for his diagnosis. Is he doing to get a feeding tube?
