Temporary Loss Of Speech Causes
Migraines/stroke/TIA: Migraines are generally considered due to blood vessel constriction in the brain followed by blood vessel dilation. There is also an electrochemical component in the brain. As a result, some migraines can-with or without pain-cause temporary loss of higher brain functions such as speech. Tia's are similar, causing temporary loss, but strokes can cause permanent loss - all with or w/out headaches.
TINGLING & SPEECH: Transient cerebral events, seizures need to be ruled out. You need to see a neurologist. An MRI of the brain may be necessary.
Loss of speech: Mutism = inability to speak. Aphasia = loss of language or communication ability.
Question is unclear: A good recovery would consist of complete return of speech and orientation but that's not what you're asking, no doubt. Could you please re-phrase?

Oh my--: And did you tell your parents about what happened? Unfortunately, because you're a minor for another 2 years we cannot specifically counsel you with medical advice without your parents' permission. But they could sign up for a HealthTap Account like you did and ask any question they'd like on your behalf and we'd be happy to advise them on what things they should think about for that problem.See 1 more doctor answer

My 4 years old son is suffering from uncordinated movement and loss of speech as a result of mild cp. What therapy can I offer to assist his movement?
Help for mild cp: A speech pathologist should be able to help your child with communication issues. In addition to verbal communication, there are technologies to help communicate. Consult a psysiatrist (rehabilitation doctor), or pediatric neurologist and a physical therapist for help with his motor activity. You may find a coordinated program by contacting the cerebral palsy association or easter seals.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: People can have a slightly hoarse voice and a sore throat after intubation, this will resolve and should get better in a couple of days. However, if there is complete loss of voice (or very hoarse), or if it is taking longer-this is not typical and could be a sign of a problem. Uncommonly, the arytenoid cartilage can be dislocated. Don't delay if one is still very hoarse after a couple of days.See 1 more doctor answer

Can zyprexa invega geodon or other antipsychotics and antidepressants cause aphasia and other speech difficulties/disorders? I have trouble now.
Aphasia: Yes this could be a side effect of these antipsychotics I would suggest you see your psychiatrist and explain the side effects that you are having
Speech deficits: Speech deficits = impairment in oral communication.
Yes: If an appropriate speech evaluation is completed, and there is a true expressive or receptive aphasia, even a mild dysnomia, this should be readily discerned.
Call one and ask: Go to the source--ask the prospective therapist.
Hello, ive been having episodes of numbness, loss of peripreal vision, aphasia, sometimes accompanied by a migrain, but not always. Any ideas?
Perhaps: At your age, if you suffer migraine, an aura might cause full-blown transient aphasia. Insufficient blood flow associated with stroke issues could also cause transient speech problems. Stress often affects our speech, and depression often blunts communication. Just to be safe, check with your usual doctor to pin down.
