Twitching Tremor Speech issues

Postby germantwitcher on February 22nd, 2012, 10:54 am

Hello!

I'm glad to have found this forum, so I know I'm not alone with my problems. I'm a 34 old man from Germany and my problems started 3 years ago.

Twitching started in my right leg and then moved on to the whole body. I went to the neuro and had a clean EMG, neuro status was ok. He diagnosed me with BFS. About one year ago things started to become worse. There was tremor in both hands when I was holding things or moved them. Twitching became worse. So I went to the neuro again. Again everything was ok, I even had an MRI, which was clean. During the following period my tremor became less but suddenly, it was about 6 months ago, I had problems with my speech. It is like there is a brake in my tongue. I have problems with e.g. "s", "e" or "l". My speech issues didn't become better so one month ago I went to my neuro again, who sent me again to the MRI to be sure I do not have MS or something like that. The MRI was clean again.

The speech issue is the biggest problem for me, I have it since 6 months and it is horrible. The problem is, generally I do not have any problems with anxiety, but this is really scary and I do not know how to get this speech problem away.

Hi
I've had the speech issues too for a good 28 months
This is the stuff that drives me crazy,
This is the stuff that's getting to me lately
But in the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I'm blessed
Cause this is the stuff You use.

chrissi, also dein Tremor is der Hammer, da ist meiner direkt schwach dagegen ;-)

I believe the doctor that I don't have a severe disease, but it is very difficult to relax when you feel the symptoms, especially the slurring speech. Maybe I should go to the dentist to check for TMJ.....?

Yes, the speech stuff is the worst. It's very hard to forget about

If the symptoms were ALS related you would have severe speech difficulties 6 months after you first perceived the problem. Never underestimate the effects of stress and its impact on voice and speech production. ALS does not discriminate between particular speech sounds.
