I can't believe it everytime I think O.k. I don't have ALS, I read a post that scares the daylights out of me Marymo stated in her post "THROAT", that the onset of Bulbar als is twitching???? so now I'll be worrying, and testing my tounge :cry: I go see a nuero next wed. so maybe I'll just stay away until then!!!

Saundra,

The onset of bulbar als is slurred speech or inability to swallow without choking, usually on water. Twitching is almost never a presenting sx of als. Forget about bulbar onset, especially if you haven't been slurring or choking.

Relax, and enjoy the weekend!

Besides, a definitive "abnormal" EMG reading as well. Twitching alone certainly does NOT mean ALS, what so ever. Not even in the throat!
