Verbal Hallucinations?

Verbal Hallucinations?

This is the 4th time it happened to me, last night while watching a movie with hubby. This is how he explained what happened... I suddenly turned to my husband and said something so random that it just does not make any sense. I can hear myself talk and then it's like I suddenly become aware of my surroundings. And immediately I feel so helpless and scared!

Is it normal for a Parkinson's patient to move too quickly?

I don't have most of the other symptoms of ALS so still hoping for… read more

Problems with choking

Problems with choking

I have problems with balance, speech not being able to talk very loud and my tongue does not move well. I had a swallow test and that was ok. But I can choke on food because my tongue does not move around in my mouth very well to push the food where it needs to go, and sometimes goes right down my throat before I chew it.
Lately I have been having trouble with taking a drink of water or or sometimes I'm just swallowing and I choke its like I cant catch my breathe. I start wezzing. It seems… read more
