Swallowing and dribbling!

Hi there! I have a possible lesion in the pons, 2nd MRI is next week. I was wondering if a lesion there could be the cause of my problems swallowing liquids, disgraceful dribbling overnight and when I talk, and occasional odd breathing problems, like I just can’t catch my breath and have to breathe in two or three times to catch one breath? Does anyone else get this? Many thanks Kay xxx

The pons is important for lots of fundamental functions, including swallowing and breathing, so the fact you’re having these issues suggests that there is a lesion there. Karen x
