    You're looking in the wrong place - that's a Doctor's role, which is why you have to follow up with a medical professional.

    You're wasting your time by asking the same questions on this MND Forum over and over and over and over again because you simply cannot get that "straight answer" here.

    ​Diagnosed 03/2007. Sporadic Definite ALS/MND Spinal (hand) Onset.
    Eye gaze user - No functional limbs - No speech - Feeding tube - Overnight NIV.


      Benign fasciculations are not to worry about. They may keep you up at night, but if they are not detected in an EMG, it probably is not MND. Swallowing difficulty can occur at any stage of Parkinson's disease (PD). There are other things that can cause these symptoms. Only a professional can properly diagnose your symptoms.

      Take a deep breath, and think about the compulsive nature of your inquiries. Obsessions like this can be considered a mild, yet troubling, mental health issue. Medical professionals deal with this type of thing every day, so gauge yourself. Do you trust your doctors? Then talk to them because they are the ones that are responsible to you. If you do not, find a new caretaker who you can trust. Write a log, and hand it over to your doctor. Let him worry about it.
