Common Questions and Answers about Stroke symptoms stuttering


Avatar f tn Could my stroke-induced stuttering be permanent, since areas of my brain are 'dead' and simply 'rewired' due to speech rehab. ? I can usually control my fluency, but when I am worried or stressed. my speech block and stuttering is really terrible. I had the stroke 2 years ago. It is really agonising.
Avatar m tn t told her that in the last two days I might have had another bigger stroke based on slurring words, stuttering, my hands have started twitching, I have little idea what I did today and sometimes will suddenly forget where I am when I'm driving.
Avatar n tn My mother is in her early 40's. About 10 years ago she was admitted to the hospital for the first time for what the dr's said was a stroke. Throughout the years shes been in and out and back and forth to different doctors and hospitals for this. They were saying stroke then changed it from full strokes to TIA's. When she has these spells her left side of her mouth sags she gets blurred vision in her left eye the left side of her body gets weak or goes numb.
Avatar f tn Since November I have had some interesting symptoms. My left would tremor then go numb. I have gotten up to walk and couldn't my legs just stumbled about like a baby taking his first steps. I have developed stuttering that seems to be made worse with every attack. My legs are always cold and I have a consistent pain with swelling with pain in my left calf. I get dizzy and confused during these attacks also. The mra that was taken during my attack showed slight narrowing in my neck artery.
Avatar f tn It has been a month now since I presented with stroke like symptoms but I was no diganosed with a stroke. Clear MRI and CT scans but those were done as soon as I got to the hospital. I am still having issues with dizziness and stuttering and twitching but was in the clear for 3 weeks until wed evening. I guess I kind of had a relapse I am doing better but still not feeling great, I have also had a major headache for over a week now.
Avatar m tn Are sudden onset of stuttering and forgetfulness of proper words to use when speaking a sign of a mild stroke? And what about sudden onset of short term memory issues. Andrew Pugh Vancouver B.C.
Avatar n tn My 88 year old Dad has experienced over the past six weeks seven 'flu like' attacks that last for approximately 3 hours each. No fever and no pattern, but he complains of 'flu like' symptoms and has difficulty talking when these attacks come upon him. His blood pressure reading is high, (170 / 110), during the last episode which was this morning just after he awoke.
Avatar f tn With his 6th reaction to the plasma, being the worse, he had neurological problems such as stuttering and unable to speak fluently so the doctors performed an MRI on his brain to see if he had suffered a stroke. What they found is a mass on the back portion of his brain. The stuttering and delayed speech subsided a few hours later.
Avatar f tn Hello! I had a TIA on December 23rd, 2008. At the time, I was experiencing stuttering, babbling (however I didn't know this - my words sounded completely rational to my mind but not to people around me) inability to complete words or sentences, confusion, inability to whistle (?) and an occasional episode of being unable to understand normal / everyday words (the ER doctor asked me whether I had any other symptoms and I didn't know what the word symptom meant?
Avatar f tn In the latter, a person has difficulties framing his thoughts—so stuttering is possible. It can be the result of a visual processing disorder. Also if stuttering developed in adulthood, it can be due to anxiety, head injury, tumor, stroke or drug use. All these may affect speech and learning, and visual perception of letter. You need to consult a speech and language therapist to assess the cause of your problem. Do request your PCP to refer you to one. Take care!

Avatar n tn s daughter has been living with her father for over 3 years, since my stroke. Strokes Suck. My stroke left me unable to use my left leg and arm. I wish you luck. and good health in the future.
363110 tn?1340920419 Ladies your used to me writing about TJ, but this time it's my mom. My mother has fybromyalgia and other things so a complicated medical history. But lately she's had issues with stuttering, mixing her words up, and having problems walking/functioning right. She shakes too. I doubt it's a medication side effect because it came on rather suddenly over the last couple weeks. The other night we went to "deaf pizza night" and my mom has always been GREAT with sign language.
Avatar n tn About 6 weeks ago I started suffering from dizziness, loss of balance, headaches, left sided numbness to the point of not being able to lift my arm, stuttering, and forgetfullness. My normal BP is 120/60 and pulse rate 70. On this particular day BP was 150/102 pulse rate around 150-170. They rushed me to the hospital where they did a CT that came back normal. Placed me in observation for 2 days then did EEG. That came back normal also.
Avatar f tn I collapsed at work on Thursday and am now unable to form my words. I am stuttering/slurring my speech and find the words are getting stuck. I strain my neck a lot to get my words out. I had MRI this past weekend and it was fine. No stroke, no tumors found on MRI. Please can you tell me what is happening with me. I lead a very stressed life as I am a divorced mom who has an ex husband who is always causing stress in my life and my daughters lives.
667923 tn?1421462724 I have been experiencing intense pain,numbness on the whole left side of body. The weakness has been so bad that I can't even move my left hand or foot.I felt like a 40lb. weight was laying on my hand and foot to keep it from moving. I felt like I was having a stroke and after doing research on it, I did. Maybe it was an Ischemic attack or TIA. I have had 3 or 4 of these attacks and don't want to wind up having a full blown STROKE.
Avatar m tn t have any other symptoms except for feeling a little weakened and I had a little tingling on only a small section of my right lower leg that went away before the "speech episode began".I experienced nothing else.Now I know if I were to have read it this online I would automatically say that it had to be a T.I.A. So I went directly to the hospital and these were the tests that were performed: - Bloodwork done - A "CatScan" - A chest X-Ray - An M.R.I.
