Treatment for slurred speech my sister forget her medicine for 2ds pressure went so high cause a slurred speech she is on medication but will go away?
May be a stroke: The "so high" blood pressure may have caused a stroke involving one of the speech centers in the brain. If this is new, recommend going to the hospital right away. If it happened a while ago, it may go away, especially with speech and rehabilitative therapy.
Rest is best: Most of the time, the symptoms will go away over time. Sometimes, it does take a few weeks to get back to normal. Most physicians will recommend physical and intellectual rest, meaning to stay out of work, school, and abstaining from any activities for a few days at least. If you have any other concerning symptoms or things aren't getting better, please see your physician. Best of luck to you!

Does my husband have pneumonia? High fever 102, bad dry cough, difficulty talking and hard to breathe, achey and body pain, fatigue & exhaustion, just home from cruise and came on hard 24 hours ago?
He: He may have pneumonia. He would need to be examined to know. Because he is having a hard time breathing, I recommend he be seen at the emergency room.
I can't predict: You didn't mention the cause of your dysarthria but if it's reversible, then potentially your speech issues can be fixed (right?). However, if your dysarthria is caused by a stroke, it's less likely, at least not w/o extensive ; intensive speech therapy. In fact, you should ask your st for his/her opinion.
Definition: Difficult or unclear articulation of speech that is otherwise linguistically normal.
Speech therapy: Although may be tedious and time consuming, a good speech therapist could be miraculous. If you possess some head and neck structural problems complicating this, there are some otolaryngologists who specialize in voice rehabilitation;.
Can be improved: Speech therapists help immensely, and are very successful with dysarthria. Occupational therapists may provide additional support. Some medications, such as Ritalin (methylphenidate) may improve dysphasia, and occasionally help dysarthria. So, lots of support out there. Get involved in a rehab program.
