Slurred Speach, Gait Issues

My husband has ben dealing with gait issues for 6 months. Started with walking issues and has moved to arm movements. They come and go. He has gone weeks symptom free and then they are back. He recently started having slurred speech. Have done every test in the book and nothing. He looks like he is having seizures. They believe it is a psychological movement disorder but I am not convinced. Has anyone ever had anything similar?

Hi there!

The symptoms described may normally be associated with seizure disorder without the presence of other neurological disorders such as strokes etc. Management in such cases should be aimed at control of seizure disorder and correction of electrolyte abnormalities or metabolic issues if any are detected. Also the possibilities of strokes, metabolic issues, psychological issues would need to be ruled out in the situation. I would suggest considering a detailed evaluation by a neurologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
