I’m a 31 year old female.

I’m here bc I am fearing that I may have bulbar onset. My story goes:

Back in July, I had a couple tongue twitches that went away within a day or 2. But as of a week ago, they are back and I’ve also been having other symptoms show up as well. I should add that I’ve had body wide twitching for quite a long time but they haven’t bothered me as much as this does.

Slight jaw tremor showed up a couple days ago, my voice has been raspy or gravelly sounding and I’ve been having to clear my throat a lot. I also have numbness that happens in my throat and in my mouth. Sometimes my neck feels tired and I have to lay my head back to rest it. All these symptoms seem to be happening really fast and it’s worrisome.

I should also add that I have seen a neuro in late August who did a clinical exam and he said he found nothing concerning but ordered an EMG for me.

I would appreciate and feedback or support as I’m really scared this could be the start of bulbar.

Thank you for your time.
