I am so worried about my speech.

I have been expierencing speech problems for 2 months now. I seem to be saying words wrong around 8 times per day.
I feel liter in the day my speech is slurred and when I go out in very cold weather I find it harder to talk.
my husband has heard me a few times.

does this sound like bulbar? Also seems to be more noticile when I have a few glasses of wine.

I have read this happens in bulbar onset 😓

the nuerology wait time is months and this has taken over my life.

We have already answered this several times.

Stop reading. Start living. Obviously, wine can cause slurring. If you take any medications, you can check to see or ask your GP or pharmacist if they might be sedating, which can cause speech problems.

I am closing this thread. Please do not start another.
