I had someone close to me with what they think was lyme induced als. Tick bite with bullseye, no treatment. He had slurred speech first which after a year or so progressed to swallowing issues. Do you have issues with speech?
I have/had a lump in my throat sensation which sometimes would feel weird swallowing - maybe because I was constantly swallowing and bothered by the lump. I found that mine was allergy related. I figured it out when i stopped buhner herbs and it went away. It was either the jap knotweed, dandelion or andrographis. I get it if i eat eggs or bananas too. Could you be allergic or developed an allergy to bv? Mine took almost a year for allergy to develop. Something to consider...Could you try benadryl and see if it got better?
No slurred speech. I'm trying not to think about
ALS. You raised my blood pressure there k07Early on - pre-diagnosis...I had a sensation of lump in my throat...this was when I was nursing a 'pinched nerve' that radiated across my shoulder blade, left arm and hand.... (didn't know it was lyme and co's at that time)
I would often choke on my food...and even occasionally my saliva.
Ended up having a barium swallow X-ray. (I KNOW - BARIUM XRAY!!!!) Everything looked fine (maybe I was having a good day?) .
Then a couple months later I went to the ENT Doc and he put a camera through my nose down the back of my throat and had me eat a cracker and swallow...said everything was fine.
Said there was no irritation.
It slowly got better even prior to treatment.
I think it was the ninth cranial nerve being affected from lyme.
