hi. my main issue is speech too although I do have upper arm weakness and atrophy in both hands and feet. I started with headache, occasional slurred speech and upper arms that kept going to sleep. No diagnosis yet, EMG's negative. Can you still say whole sentences that arent slurred? How fast have you progressed?

May I ask how long have you had speech problems? Also, do you have twitches, atrophy? Did you have a positive EMG of bulbar area? I have had the speech thing for over a year, seems to be getting a little worse but still where most people dont notice. I dont really slur, just seem to get tongue tied or cut the end off of words, also I have unnatural pauses in my speech sometimes. sound familiar?
