A 24-year-old male asked:
Can frequent sinusitis cause slurred speech?

Don't think so: Nasal congestion from sinusitis infections should just change one's voice and make it sound more nasally or more congested. Merely having a stuffy nose should not cause slurring of speech. That means a person who just started slurring his speech should look for another reason instead of sinusitis, and may need to see his doctor to figure out what is happening.
