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 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 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 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.
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.
1152950 tn?1263914226 I'll try to be brief-- Little over a year ago I went in with left sided numbness, speech issues, nausea, and drowsiness. I was sent home after a brief visit with the diagnosis of "viral syndrome". The only tests performed were cbc, basic chem. Labs were normal. Left side returned to normal within a couple of hours but vertical virtigo persisted for months.
Avatar f tn I have a feeling that when you bumped your head, you could have done a number on your neck, causing many vertebrae to become misaligned and pressing on nerves, if this is the case, then stuttering could be one of the symptoms. I feel that seeing a chiropractor should be your next plan of action. Tell them what happened, he/she will take some x-rays of your neck, this will show any misalignment in that area. Then, they will give you an adjustment.
Avatar m tn But were it a stroke, that should have been evident on the scans of the head. I have a parent who has had a TIA and evidence at least of old infarcts was forthcoming on a brain scan.
Avatar m tn Hi all. I'm a pretty healthy 27 year old. I'm also an actor, and i've never had a problem speaking to anyone or performing in front of thousands of people. Recently I was at work and realized that my words were stuttering and that it's difficult sometimes to speak as fluidly as I used too, and I feel like I sound different even though everyone tells me they're not noticing anything. I have had problems with anxiety in the past.
Avatar f tn Yeah, I'll start stuttering and can't stop. I have to stop myself and say it very slowly. Sometimes it feels like my brain is just stuck.
Avatar f tn The anxiety is now almost constant, and I have developed a really bad problem stuttering, despite never having had speech problems in the past. I read that anxiety and stuttering are not directly linked and that it might be due to sertraline. Will this go away or will I just have to get on with it, and will this anxiety go away eventually or is it the sertraline causing it? Any ideas would be great please.
16490231 tn?1448435621 medical records to send to Duke, I reviewed the MRI findings and impressions from my 08/12/2015 trip to the ER for stroke-like symptoms (39 yr old F), I believe something may have certainly been overlooked. Under the findings section, it states: There is a mild cerebellar tonsillar ectopia, measuring 5mm on the right. From what I understand.....this phrase is used interchangeably with Chiari Malformation. That night at the ER, I was told my diagnosis was Migraine Variant.
Avatar f tn I went home and 5 days later Im in Emergency room with symptoms of a Stroke. I couldnt believe it. I told my nurse Im just too young to have a stroke. One of my nurses said your also to young to be on Lipitor and Digixon. So everyone is different. I had 4 different MRI's and one of them showed buldging discs in C-Spine but was told wasnt Spinal Stenosis so it shouldnt have caused a stroke to occur or symptoms. MRI came back clear but no Angiogram was performed.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I'm 42 years old, and I've been stuttering for as long as I can remember. It's hard to compare myself with other people who stutter since I know very few, but I would consider myself a mild (on my good days) to high (on my bad days) type of stutterer. My fluency comes and goes, and it's beyond frustrating. According to a study I read titled 'A review of brain circuitries involved in stuttering' posted in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience (https://www.ncbi.
Avatar n tn My 3.5 yr. old son has begun stuttering. For a long time now (about 6 months or so) he's been repeating words, but I haven't been too concerned about this. However, over the last week or so, he struggles to get the first few letters out. For instance, he'll ask "wwwwwhhhere's the dog?". And I've noticed it often involves the "what", "where", and "why" questions. It doesn't happen all the time.
Avatar f tn My husband has just started stuttering. He doesn't do it all the time. But I was wondering why at the age of 51 is he stuttering now. I have known him since he was 18 and he has never stuttered. Could it be MS?
