Questions about Bulbar onset

How fast can it progress? I've posted on here before with my symptoms. For five days now, I've had difficulty swallowing. It seems to get worse day by day. After that, I began to have twitches all over my body. Everywhere. Face, tongue, back, all in my legs, anywhere you can think of. Sometimes, all the same time. It only happens when I'm laying down. I have noticed a bit of muslce weakness, but nothing major. However, I have noticed my limbs on my left side feel weak. When I eat now, I can feel my food a lot; it feels sharp. It also feels like someone is pinching my throat glands. Is it possible for ALS symptoms to progress this quickly from throat to body, or even all at once, within a two months or within a few weeks?
