Dysarthria is causing my slurred speech. Has anyone else experienced this? Does LD affect the vocal cords, throat and tongue, similar to all the other muscles - legs arms etc.?

Everday I say, "if only I could get my voice back". Does anyone have suggestions of what I can do to improve this? Is it even possible? I've read too much so that now i'm confused! Should I arrange to have my fillings replaced immediately, is it in diet or supplements?

I've been on abx for 7 mos now. The only abx that i've seen any results with is Bicillin, which I only get 1x/mo. Although it's a short-lived improvement, only for a day or 2, my balance & speech improve, but it keeps me hangin on! I just came off 60 days on IV rocephin, which only made me more tired & weaker.

Bottom line - I can't get out of my head that I know i have LD, but am i too far gone with the ALS symptoms, to ever improve. Is it my muscles or motor neurons, or both?

Any light of hope would be appreciated!

Your not to far gone lyme spirochetes eat or attack nerve coverings called mylene which can effect any nerves in your body including the ones controling speech and also when its in your brain the message gets screwed up.

Swallowing also is effected mucle control and there can be numbness like in MS which they are now treating with abx's.

To answer your question its both go threw my links and sort out what pertains to you Good Luck Hang in there .

Also get useing probiotics especially acidophilis and B complex and cq10 Magnesium.


Here's more goodys! A typical response to newcomers.

Hi and WELCOME! Get a LLMD or at least Dr that is willing to learn about lyme. Borrelia Burgdorferi is a clinical diagnosis, based on symptoms and on your response to treatment. Good Luck, bumpy road ahead.

Post for a LLMD in Seeking a Doctor. Ps remember I am not a Dr, just a fellow sufferer.

google: "selenium + als" or 'Selenium + borrelia"
One site states that Se and Sulfur are high and implies they need to be reduced.

google 'vitamin D + multiple sclerosis'
vitmin D may tone done immune aggression.
