Can stress cause slurred speech?

Since this economic time has hit my husband and I hard; living on retirement $ instead of a job...  I have not been able to take a deep breath; 1st time in my life on sleeping pills, and when I am talking fast - I pick the wrong word in a sentence but then correct myself.  Can slurred-picking the wrong word - but catching yourself - be caused by stress.?  Thank you for your time.

This forum is about sleep, not stress. However, slurred speech can be due to medications, alcohol, a neurological problem, etc., but not stress so discuss this with your doctor.
