I am a 72 year old woman, diagnosed yesterday with PBP at UCSF. Was told that because my Emg only showed a problem with my tongue, speech and swallowing, i might have two to five years before losing muscle in my limbs. I understand might have a need for peg or other items to communicate. When I check the internet it looks like this is a disease that has a short term prognosis. Any help with our concerns?
