What do doctors do about sudden but temporary loss of speech?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Boris Aronzon
23 years experience in Anesthesiology
Looking back: Fortunately symptoms are resolved, because you said it was temporary speech loss. First thing to do is rule out stroke or transient ischemic attack. If the condition is resolved multiple studies should be done to find out the cause.
