God bless the person who recommended this forum to me tonight. I've been hypochondriac for quite a bit but funnily enough, my worries are related to my fiancÚ and not.to me. He's been a slower speaker all his life and confessed he's always had a problem with excess saliva. He doesn't drool insanely but sometimes he will have moments where he has to wipe the corner of his mouth after rattling something off or will have saliva welling up in his mouth when he's talking. Other than that, the only things I could pinpoint are the fact that he's left-handed and his right-hand side muscles are stronger - this is something a physio said to him. He has muscle twitching when he falls asleep and sometimes when he's stood up talking, he will bend his knees just a tiny bit, a movement that looks like his knees are dropping just a slightly bit. He says it's something he does consciously and he feels perfectly in balance. We've been to the GP and he dismissed the symptoms saying he was perfectly fine. Nevertheless, we insisted on seeing a neurologist as well,just to be on the safe side. The neurologist did some tests but thought there was nothing wrong with him. Of course, under my abnoxious insisting my fiancÚ demanded an MRI scan and the neuro had to refer him. The scan results came back fine. Now, as a lot of you here would agree, this sort of scenario is far from being able to put an end to the inner turmoil.
I can't let go of thinking that there is something wrong: the occasional pausing in sentences or repeating a word(very mild stammering) and the saliva excess aren't normal in my view but we just won't get anywhere with these doctors being constantly reassuring. Does anyone have any idea or heard of anything like this?I'm ever so grateful for.any response.
