Can I ask.....
In addition to my tongue issues: I seem to get a soar throat a lot. As the day goes on my voice cracks and I clear my throat a lot.
It also feels a bit soar/dry.
Is this MND symptom?

I have the sane symptoms you just described with sore throat and hoarse voice. I'm at my ent for this and another issue as I type. You might have LPR, a form of acid reflux.

He suggested post nasal drip and a food allergy, but right now I don't have a good answer. He said he does not suspect an MND.

I do get occasional tongue twitches, the suspect this far is anxiety. Based on presentation, neither my ent, gp, or neurologist suspects any kind of neuro disease. Doesn't mean I'm not scared of what it might be, but I don't think either of us have ***.

I'm wondering why in the morning my tongue seems to be abjebto keep still at rest. But as the day goes on it flickers and does the crazy movements above.

This. This is the lesson BFS had to teach me in life. Once I learned to concentrate on the good things in life automatically (as opposed to having to force myself to do so), BFS slowly faded away into the nothingness that it seemed to come from.
If your mind is your own worst enemy, why not make friends with it and turn it into your greatest ally? Mental discipline is achievable and there is help available. Learn what works for you, practice, and change your life for the better.

I am feeling worried today.... When I shout my throat scratches
My tongue still strange
My lips still twitch
My face still twitches
My tongue is twitching and I feel it with mouth closed

It's now 'spread' to arm and I've had tingles in hand all day


Arghhhhh


Any talkers/support

I think I need to avoid the looking in my mouth.
I find it hard to see the difference between the random flickers I get, and the ones for an MND sufferer on YouTube!
Soooo frustrating. I so wish they would just stop!
Fed up of constant worrying

Sadface,
getting over anxiety takes a lot of time. It is the same as fighting any addiction becasue mechanisms on the biological level are very similar. And even an abstinent effect is much similar.

So please remember a rule of thumb - FAILING NOT FEELING (which means that clinical weakness means failing to use muscles, and perceived is feeling you may fail) and give yourself plenty of time. Be strong in terms of keeping at your decision.

Good is that you may not do it by yourself and in any time you may get professional help in this process.

Ditto for me. Much worse in the morning. Before you find, or someone posts something here, some
Article where 1/999999999999999 people had tongue twitching better in the morning and that this is a sign of a terrible disease where your head turns into a banana, let me tell you it's probably stress related. For whatever reason, two months ago I developed a "true tongue fasciculation" and since then I've developed all these other larger twitches of the tongue undoubtedly related to testing etc.

I'm doing a challenge and you should join me: no tongue checking for a week.
