For the past two months I have felt like there is a lump in my throat and I have difficulty swallowing. My neck and jaw also feel stiff. I was just wondering if anyone could explain to me what it feels like when you have swallowing difficulties due to ALS. Does it feel like a lump? Does it feel like your whole neck/throat is constricted? I feel like I always have mucous stuck in my throat.

I sometimes also feel that I am having difficulty getting words out of my mouth and my voice is a little hoarse, but I think this is more likely a cold starting. I do not have any other symptoms of ALS - no twitching, no tongue fasciculations, no weakness in my limbs.

Thanks for any help you might be able to offer. I'm starting to get anxious about this situation.
