Thread: Tight jaw

    I just wanted to ask if a stiff, tight jaw was a first sign of mnd?

    My partner is really suffering with face, jaw and neck stiffness. Especially after eating or talking.

    His Dad was diagnosed with mnd 3 years ago and 2 other members of his family have passed away due to mnd. So we’re obviously jumping straight to conclusions!

    Love to you all.

    Hi Fiona,

    That doesn't sound like ALS/MND onset.

    I get why you'd both be anxious, so it's best to have it checked out by his GP.

    Love Ellie.

    Hi Fiona;

    Like Ellie, I don't remember hearing of Mnd starting like that.

    Love Terry
