2. Strokes More Commonly Associated with Speech Problems
Slurring or mumbling words are often early symptoms of a stroke. The National Stroke Association explains a common condition following a stroke is aphasia, which affects the patient’s ability to communicate due to the resulting brain damage. It can also cause a stroke victim to have trouble understanding what others are saying.
The good news is, according to the source, a full recovery is often possible from this stroke side effect. Some of the techniques used to help rebuild communication skills include melodic intonation (singing), art therapy, and group therapy. Speaking skills can still be impacted by an aneurysm, regardless of whether it has ruptured.
