Speech difficulties: There is not enough information to answer this question. If the slurring is recent, i would consider a stroke as the genesis of the problem. If the slurring is due to a transient ischemic attack (tia), then this problem ought to clear with 24-48 hrs. In any case, a complete neurological workup is in order to determine origin of the slurring and direct treatment.
