Phil's issues most bothersome are swallowing, speech, and imbalance. Also bladder. There are many more, but these bother him the most. He gets speech/swallowing exercises once a week. Tends to aspirated some and drooling. Trying to keep to a minimum. Seems to be helping, but he needs to do them. Everyday!!!!

My earlier symptoms were blacking out, heart rate was erratic from 40 to a recorded 235bpm. Body cramping, blurred vision. Walking around felt like my feet were in concrete. Trying to walk straight was and is impossible anymore. Hopefully that answers your question.
