Good evening

Sorry to bother anyone but due to COVID my waiting time to speak to my GP is now 3 weeks was hoping for a bit of advice with regards to slurred speech.

I understand slurred speech is the most common symptom of Bulbar Onset however in the early stages is the slurred speech obvious to others or could it be missed. Reasoning is I feel like I am slurring words here and there but my friends and family have advised I sound normal. Could you advise if I had slurred speech would it be obvious to others ?

Finally , I have posted before and I am now involved on health anxiety forums that were kindly recommended by a member on the site.

Again I can't thank you enough for your time and advice

Yes it would be obvious. Please utilize those other sites instead of asking the folks on this forum to continue to reassure you here.
