In brief: Speech difficulties

Acquired speech difficulties, such as slurring, are often associated with an underlying neurological or metabolic problem. A sudden onset of slurring ought to be investigated immediately, since it may be a problem that is reversible.
Most commonly, slurring is associated with hypoglycemia and altered states of consciousness or a stroke (or mini-stroke)_.
