Had diagnosed stoke (?) 10/06. Have had PERODIC left lower facial weakness (lip droops in corner), left tongue weakness, and throat weakness since. Eposodes last 3 to 5 weeks and go away several weeks before reappearing. This month it came back more severe than normal including this time the right side of face and throat. Weakness gets so bad that I can not be understood when speaking. Problem wrost when laying down! Have had spinal tap, MRI's, CAT Scans, --all negative-- seen many doctors. One doctor wants to send me to Mayo Clinic if spells continue. The only thing that has been postive was nerve conduction test (5/07) which showed I had some compromised nerves in left side of face with one dead nerve. Right side had some minor problems. Could I have ALS Bulbar or PBP?
