Has Anyone Ever Choked In Front Of A Speech Therapist While Being Elected Shocked? Or Am I The Only One?

Has Anyone Ever Choked In Front Of A Speech Therapist While Being Elected Shocked? Or Am I The Only One?

Going to speech therapy for dysphasia. Besides swallowing strategies I am getting electric shocked. While eating lunch and being shocked I choked on some stir fry chicken. I guess if you’re going to choke doing in front of a speech therapist is the best place.

Not had that run yet but I would think the choking is common. I would have been embarrassed by it but at least your getting help.

Vocal Cords And MS

Vocal Cords And MS

I just read where tremor in the voice can be a problem for people with MS. I knew that I had changes in my vocal cords and the way I sound sometimes. Other people definitely noticed.

I thought that it could be the MS but wasn't sure because it comes and goes and I've ruled out everything else.

Anyone else?

Has Anyone Felt Like They Are Being Physically Choked?

Has Anyone Felt Like They Are Being Physically Choked?

I keep getting a feeling like someone is physically choking me and then I lose my voice and get headaches from the pressure-it's off and on and can be for days at a time then all the sudden it's gone and it comes back again whenever it wants. I'm not having any swallowing problems so that has the Neuro stumped. MRI of the brain shows the lesions got bigger and still waiting on results of the cervical spine. Has anyone had this happen to them? Is it MS related or something else perhaps?

A MyMSTeam Member said:

An update, I have food get stuck in my throat daily now. Still get the choking feeling but I try to stay calm and it eventually passes. The neuro gave me a referral to an ENT dr and he found I have… read more

Sudden Slurred Speech

Sudden Slurred Speech

I woke up Friday with slurred speech and trouble getting my words out. I read this is a symptom of ms... newly diagnosed here. I reached out to my neurologist, who didnt seem that concerned :/ I barely made it thru work today. Between crying and trying to help customers who couldnt understand me. I'm frustrated and scared. My appointment is Thursday with the neurologist. I'm tempted to go to the er for peace of mind. Just hate to spend $1000 for an er trip. I know that sounds silly. Any… read more

Are MS And Vocal Cord Dysfunction Related Because VCD Is Also Autoimmune?

Are MS And Vocal Cord Dysfunction Related Because VCD Is Also Autoimmune?

Is vocal cord dysfunction and MS somehow related? I understand that VCD is an autoimmune disorder. My health hasn't been the sane since my seizure back in 2013, and I've experienced respiratory issues with this ever since.
