i saw your post yesterday and was hoping somebody would reply!

my speech and swallowing is affected. I am labelled r/r but to me that means nowt!

ask for a speech therapist referral-they explained thoroughly to me the mechanics of speech and swallowing and gave tips and exercises to maintain current abilities and I found their input invaluable.

take care both.

Hi there Lisa. My legs & arms are quite weak & speech has been slurred & spiradic. With stittering & forgetting words. Staying cool & drinking plenty of fruit juice has helped me. It seems to be a sign of blockages, so I flush the system. Stress can contribute massively to this problem. So the main rule is stay chilled & avoid lardy blockages. Omega 3, from oily fish is magic.

Hi Lisa

In agreement with chocorange/ellie’s post. Do get referral to a speech therapist.As stated their input is invaluable re speech and swallowing
