First off, im embarrassed to be here writing this. I was doing better, so I thought.
About 10 days ago I began having troUble swallowing.
Food gets stuck at the back of my throat, or I have to consciously make myself swallow.
Sometimes, it feels like there is a constant lump in my throat, like food didn't properly go down all the way.
I tried to resist, but I had to google the symptoms.
Of course, this brought up the ALS fears, again😩
Now I'm thinking back to my original complaints of feeing short of breath, to now having issues swallowing. It all just lines up that I could have respiratory onset ALS.
My rational brain looks at the numbers and figures. I way. In a disease which is incredibly rare, it's even more rare to get it before 50, and if that, it's even more rare to get the respitory onset as the most rare form o ALS. So that's extremely rare, of very rare, of extremely rare.
But, here I am.
I'm begging for help here. I'm at a low point again. Thought I was doin better, in fact, I was for about a month.
Now I'm terrified again.
