Slurred Speech

Slurred Speech Treatment
Stumbling over words, running words together or otherwise speaking unclearly can indicate a number of health concerns. A few causes of slurred speech are temporary and easily explained, such as intoxication, some kinds of medication, drug use and lack of sleep.

Others causes of slurred speech are more complex. They include stroke and traumatic brain injury. These require emergency medical attention. Other causes include Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.
