Post Protruding tongue
My husband's tongue protrudes slightly from his mouth much of the time. Does anyone else's LO show display this symptom? I can't recall seeing it in Lewy info.

Pat... Many years ago, Dale would let his tongue hang out when he was working on something and I made so many remarks about it that he stopped doing it. I wonder now. Was that another early Lewy symptom?

Smell, taste, spacial perception, sleep walking, runny nose, .... how many more will there be?

Leone, I think sticking out your tongue while working on something is pretty common. With Derek, this is just when he's sitting still, doing nothing.

Dale says it was a family trait .... All the kids did it while running races. Dale's tongue sort of hung out like an over heated dog.
