      I never really had any issues with swallowing and chewing, but I know many people with SMA do. Since starting Spinraza, I have noticed that my speech has improved and is less slurred, but I eat as normally as I did before.

      For those of you who are on Spinraza and have had difficulties with chewing and swallowing, have those things improved? Can you tell a difference? I know often it takes some time to see any changes, but if you have seen anything I’d love to hear.

      I’d be very interested in such experiences as well.

      Swallowing is difficult to gauge improvement without a swallow study. Personally I have been “cheating” with regular food more often, however I doubt I’d pass a swallow study.  It’s probably more wishful thinking than any significant improvement.

        I did a swallow study once, more to check on my speech abilities. They didn’t find anything, but the test itself was kind of a pain haha. I’m only doing that again if they make me.
