    Terrified

    Hi. This year my HA has been out of control and I have written with various concerns. Now I am worried about ALS as I am having speech issues. I am having difficulties with the letters R and D. With certain words my tongue Ďtripsí over them and slurs my speech. I am in a panic again 😞

    I also would like to add that at times my gag reflex is on overdrive especially whilst brushing my teeth. My startle reflex too! My limbs and body jump with reflexes. This must be Hyperreflexia.

    Hey minion I'm sorry that you're going through this and I know how you feel because I'm going through the same worry right now.

    How fast you jump when being startled doesn't really have anything to do with hyperreflexia. Hyperreflexia is to do with the involuntary reflexes produced from having certain points on your body tapped or manipulated in some way. The only person who could test them would be your doctor.

    As you know ALS is extremely rare and even rarer still for young people. TO add on to that I believe I've read that 90% of ALS cases start with a drop foot or weak wrist. ALS starting with the tongue would be very rare. I believe your issues with speech are just anxiety related.

    Try to be strong. I will pray for you to get peace.
