May be due to mercury toxicity as mercury is used in filling teeth. Use [abuse] of pain killers are also responsible for ALS. My sister is also suffering from bulber palasy and has been on ventilatory support since March last year. Her symptons started after visiting dentist.

Yes, I'm certain after reading a book "It's All In Your Head" by Hal Huggins, that ALS is due to microbes surviving under a healed area where a tooth has been pulled, in a cavitation. An infection that turns systemic and thus breaks down healthy nerves. I have a friend in the early stages of ALS right now and had recent abcesses/dental work done shortly before diagnoses. When one has a tooth pulled, they must insist on sterilization of the cavitation or you can die from it! If you have ALS, maybe re opening the healed over cavitation and cleaning it out and then go through a detox and then take supplements to heal nerves such as magnesium and b vitamins and omega 3 etc.. Best of Luck

My symptoms started off with extreme muscle spasms and cramps. It would get worse when I was on my monthly. I was walking and running at the time to lose some weight that I thought was causing the muscle aches, headaches, and the pain that I was feeling in my whole body. One day it got overwhelming. It was August 17th, 2007. I felt like I was getting the life squeezed out of me and my mind was racing the whole time while experiencing difficulty speaking, walking, and trying to control the jerky movements. I was admitted as a psychiatric patient at that time, now it's been two years later and I feel like I am disseminating. I had another attack recently and that is what scared me enough to go to the neurologist. I am still afraid. I want to see it, and I'm interested in the damage that my body has endured. Can't wait to start treatment. Findyourdrug.com

My dearest friend, Joy Styles, died from ALS on July 1st 2011. She was only 52. She was running half marathons and was very active when she noticed an atrophy in her left and and a weakness in her right leg. I have created a website in her name http://www.hopeforjoy.ca that is about her and has useful information about the disease. I wish I could do more, but every little bit helps. God bless everyone who has had experience with this terrible disease.
