Slurred words don’t always mean a stroke, it can also be a sugar low.
This morning hubby slept in, and when I went to check on him, he spoke to me, and his words were slurred. He had his hand in front of his mouth, so I said that I didn’t hear what he said. He spoke, and it was slow, slurred words again. I asked him to lift his arms, and he looked at me as if I was an idiot. He could lift them, so stroke ruled out.
Next a diabetes check, and here was the answer, a sugar low of 54. I immediately gave him grapes, as he can’t have orange, because of the potassium (kidney failure). Within a few minutes he was back to normal.
So it’s a case of eliminating possibilites.
