What’s Causing Your Speech Problems?

Talking is the ability to share our thoughts and needs with others which is something we tend to take for granted. But what if you suddenly can’t get the words out?

Speech problems that seem to come out of nowhere may be temporary, or they could have a lasting impact. Find out the causes that contribute to speech problems:

Stroke – Trouble speaking, along with having a numb or drooping face is one of the major signs of stroke which could slur your speech or unable to talk at all.

Multiple sclerosis – a disease that changes how the brain sends information between its cells and with the rest of the body. People who have lesions in areas of the brain responsible for speech due to this disease can have severe speech issues.

Brain cancer – if the cancer is in the part of the brain that handles language, it could affect your speech.

Seizure – seizure which could be caused by strokes or brain tumours could affect the language zones and impairs your speaking ability.
