    Headache with slurred speech?!

    Hi all,

    Approximately 4 months ago I developed a fuzzy, tingling sensation on the left side of my head. The tingling does not hurt but covers practically the entire side of my left head and mostly resides near the surface. I cannot recall exactly when I developed the symptoms but it may have been due to heavy weight lifting.

    I have had a CT and MRI and both came back with no abnormalities. However, I am booked in to see a neurologist in one month.

    The symptoms include mostly language difficulties e.g. slurred speech, trouble with articulation, and difficulty finding words. Sometimes I missplace a letter for another (e.g. lice for ice) or on bad days I say the wrong word entirely (although they are usually somehow related). It's like I know what I want to say but when I open my mouth I struggle with the sentence. I also have trouble reading and comprehending long spoken sentences. At the very beginning I also suffered coordination problems but they have ceased.

    The symptoms are aggravated by any form of physical exertion. E.g. running, lifting weights, sex, climbing stairs, even urination. If I stop all forms of exertion for a few days my symptoms improve but do not go away completely.

    All signs point to verbal apraxia of speech but the CT and MRI came back negative? I have no history of speech, reading, comprehension, or coordination problems either.

    Any ideas on what is happening to me??

    Many thanks!
