Most mornings I wake up with this infernal Jaw Chatter. It's like my jaw has a mind of it's own and just chatters like I am cold or something. Does anyone else get this or is just me.

Ron :lol:

Haven't heard of anyone else complaining of that Ron. Do you have bulbar ALS?

Jaw chattering

Hello Ron:
My sister has ALS, limb onset but now experiencing bulbar symptons as well.
Her chin will quiver especially when she gets tired, which is most of the time these days.
She takes a great many meds. I really can't say if any of them help this quivering, but I think it is related to the bulbar ALS.

Take Care, Jane

Well Ron, as they say. I can imagine it is. I don't think I'm having any bulbar symptoms yet but my wife and I have a disagreement about whether the Neuro. said I was having tongue fasciculations. She says he said I was but I didn't hear that. If they have started then I guess I'll soon know how you are feeling. I am getting more phlem now and cough quite a bit more. Fun WOW. Could use one of those old brass spittoons. Anyway, have a good evening.

Yep, I'm bulbar onset too, and yep, I get jaw chatter sometimes when I get a chill. - Tom
