Sodara Suddenly Couldn’t Speak?
I want to ask, I have a brother suddenly he can’t talk, like the person who is confused why is it, is there a nerve problem or mild stroke symptoms
Speech disorders caused by disorders of the brain are called aphasia. Aphasia can be caused by a stroke, brain tumor, brain infection, severe head injury or other disorders of the brain such as Parkinson's disease. Types of aphasia include:
Receptive aphasia, which is difficulty understanding what the other person is saying so that the response is chaotic and difficult to understand. Expressive aphasia, knows what to say but has difficulty saying it Anomic aphasia, difficulty choosing and finding the right words when speaking or writing Global aphasia, unable to read, write, and difficulty understanding conversations
Apart from aphasia, it can also occur due to disturbances in muscle control such as dysarthria. Usually also accompanied by difficulty swallowing. Dysarthria can be caused by disorders in the brain or disorders of the peripheral nerves, such as myasthenia gravis or Guillain-Barre syndrome. There are many other types of speech difficulties, psychological disorders such as anxiety or depression can also cause speech difficulties.
It is better if your sibling is examined directly by a neurologist as soon as possible, because if you have a stroke, the sooner it is treated, the more likely it is to recover.
