How Neuropathy has impacted swallowing

Posted by rwinney @rwinney, Mon, Feb 10 5:48pm

Please share how neuropathy may impact swallowing.

With me, I already have one paralyzed cord so whatever is going on with me all of a sudden I can’t talk right it makes it hard to swallow and talk. They did a mobility test on me and said my esophagus is not working right

@birdierobin – that sounds difficult that you can't talk right and swallowing is hard. Do you have neuropathy that is linked to this somehow, or just the paralyzed vocal cord?

@jimhd @arlinebringhurst @johnbishop @jaygats @2011panc @jcbonne1 @jenniferhunter may have some thoughts on the impact of neuropathy on swallowing or any personal experiences they have had with this symptom.

I'm sorry to hear that @birdierobin. It must be awful. What is the next planned step towards relief or diagnosis?

Hello Lisa
Any chance the conversations had yesterday under the thread "Aching Legs and Neuropathy" can be moved under this thread?
Thank you

Hi, @rwinney – unfortunately, we can only move a whole thread at this time to move it over and combine it with another thread. We don't have the capability of moving just a few posts in a thread. Please let me know if I've understood what you are asking correctly.

Ok. Yes you've understood. I suppose I can post a message under the "swallowing" thread to refer to the "Aching leg" thread for additional discussion. Haha…no biggie. I'm probably over thinking it!

Yes, you could certainly mention in the aching leg thread that you've started a new discussion on a topic that came up there on swallowing and neuropathy and give the link, @rwinney.

Rwhinny- Somehow some of these MAYO connect messages has ended up in my junk box I just found them and I just found this message sorry it’s taking me so long I did not know this was a problem I don’t know why they’re going there. I don’t know yet what’s causing my problems the neuropathy doesn’t seem to be causing this. I’m to new to have good answers
