How Neuropathy has impacted swallowing

Posted by Rachel, Volunteer Mentor @rwinney, Feb 10, 2020

Please share how neuropathy may impact swallowing.

@birdierobin

Hey Rachel I have an appointment March 24 at the male clinic so until then I’m on my own I’m just real careful chewing and eating and drinking liquids

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.

@lisalucier

@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.

How has neuropathy impacted your swallowing, @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

Hi ya! A conversation about neuropathy and swallowing began under the thread Aching Legs and Neuropathy. After the convo kicked off I then began a new thread How Neuropathy has Impacted Swallowing. Unfortunately they can not be consolidated. Sorry.

@birdierobin – normally when a message is in your Junk folder you can select the message and then click an option to tell the email program that the message is not Junk and it will be moved to your inbox. This normally adds the sender to your friends list so that it doesn't go to the Junk folder in the future. You can also setup a filter in your email program to move any message from Connect into a specific folder which you can give a name like Connect. There is a great discussion on setting up an email filter with examples that you may want to read.

Thanks John I’ll see if I can figure it out thank you so much

@birdierobin all my Mayo connect messages go to the spam folder. I was informed by Google that someone reported Mayo connect messages as spam so now Mayo connect is classified as a sender of spam and thus sent to the junk. There is a way to put in Mayo connect as a safe sender to your account. Unfortunately my cellphone is a simplified version so it doesn't allow me to do that. There is a post by Colleen Young on how to put this into a safe sender so you hopefully get them.

Thanks John but I use my cell phone. Some are going to spam and most of them are not so I have no idea why some are randomly going to spam but I’m gonna check it daily and send them to the inbox before open it and see if that solves anything. There is no button to click on that I can see.
