Answer:

Progressive Bulbar Palsy Disease

PBP or Progressive Bulbar Palsy is a clinical condition which is a part of the group of motor neuron disease (MND). This condition is characterized with degeneration of the bulbar muscles.

In this disorder, the motor neurons in the cerebral cortex, brain stem, spinal cord are attacked and result in degeneration. This condition has the specific involvement of the cranial nerves especially the glossopharyngeal, vagus and hypoglossal nerve.

Unfortunately, there is no treatment or cure for this condition.

It is a progressive disorder and a fairly aggressive type of condition with little scope for improvement. The prognosis of the condition is also fairly poor, primarily because the causative factor of this condition is yet not known.

Most of the treatment would be symptomatic and there is little hope. You could try the homeopathic drug ‘Gelsemium’ which has profound benefit on patients with other forms of lower motor neuron disease. This drug has to be taken in tincture form and repeated every four hourly.

    Hi my grandmother just found out about a month ago that she has bulbar palsy. I am 12 years old and would like to help her through the process. I would like to know if drinking diet coke over a period of about 1-6 years could cause this, because she drinks it all the time. And other sighs or symptoms that have might of cause this.
