I've just started waking up with an almost numb tongue and am having difficulty getting some words out, especially 's' sound. I have had a number of TIA's (transient ischemic attacks) over the last 18 months, alongwith complete and utter exhaustion day in day out, inability to converse properly with more than one person at a time due to sensory overload. Was just beginning to improve a little when I had a major collapse 3 week's ago and now the tongue issue. Can anyone throw some light on it? Many other symptoms, but these are the main ones. Doctor and neurologist have no real answers, other than 'take an aspirin each day'. Prior to this I was VERY fit and healthy. :(

  • don't have an answer for you. can just relate. but my legs and now my arms go numb too. the tongue is very weird though. sometimes it is hard to talk. and you are right i concentrate on getting the words out physically and then i cannot concentrate on what i am saying. sometimes i studder a little trying to get the words out. Do you find youself mixing up things? cannot think of right word or call friend/child by wrong name? any suggestions given.. my nuero at a loss.

  • Thanks for your message. Sorry but I can't seem to throw any light on the matter. Only thing I've noticed is that if I'm REALLY tired it's worse. Yes, my words get all jumbled and I tend to call people by the wrong names. All the best in your pursuit of an answer also.
