Pneumona shot and flu shot friday. Passed out, horrible headache, passed out few more times, hospitalized for 38 hours for CT, MRI, Echo with bubble study---negative stroke. After I passed out first time I can no longer communicate normal---my speaking ability is all messed up. I hear, see and comprehend, just can't speak very well--words stutter. Sent home from hospital after 36 hours with a book "life after stroke" but told it wasn't a stroke. I am now day 4, communication skills getting worse, I am only 46, diabetic but managed well with 500mg metformin no other problems.
Passing out with speech problems can be due to various reasons. Since your brain MRI is clear we need to consider other causes such as basilar migraine, complicated migraine, Parkinson’s disease, transient ischemic attacks, hyperthyroid states, and seizures. Do discuss this with your neurologist and get yourself examined accordingly. Take care!
