Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Seeking expert counseling is a sign of strength. A personal relationship with a caring professional is proven clinically effective.
I believe that I can help.
Your husband may very well have had a stroke or a mini-stroke.
You should definitely take his for a complete check up and scan. He may require medication or rest and only a doctor would be able to advise you.
I would not ignore this.
Has he had any other symptoms, any droopiness in his face or unability to use his hands as before?
I am waiting for your thoughts.
The speech function irregularities are definitely indicative of something amiss in the left hemisphere of his brain, and this is often
He needs to be examined by a doctor who will most likely send him to a neurologist.
I cannot diagnose him. He must be seen. I can tell you that you SHOULD have him seen as soon as possible, however. You would be remiss if you wait.
What are your thoughts?
My thought are that he may have experienced a stroke. I strongly urge you to bring him to see a doctor. I am also happy to address any other issues that you may have.
Is there any other way I can help you. I have given you the advice that you have sought. This is not a mental disorder, it seems, but a neurological one that needs the attention of a neurologist.
I will keep your husband and you in my prayers and wish you the best in treatment and recovedry.
Have I answered the question that you asked me, "Should he see a doctor?"
Please let me know.
You are evidently not responding. I will switch you to the Q & A mode in about five minutes and you can get back to me and rate my answer. I fully responded to your question.
I love to help other people and that is why I do this for a living. If you need further assistance I will be happy to address your issues.

I'm sorry I didn't respond. I couldn't find your answer. A stroke has crossed my mind. However, he has no other symptoms. When I discussed what had happened to him, he blew it off. Thanks for your response.
