I hope you’re all doing well.
I’m just curious to know whether anyone had speech difficulties (stuttering etc) before their AVM bleed or before their AVM was found?
I had a stutter before my rupture (along with “an area of underdevelopment” noted in a report following some brain scans I had done when I was a kid), so I just wondered if anyone has had a similar experience.
Also, if anyone knows of any neuro specialists who are knowledgeable on speech loss and avms, please let me know. I’ve asked my neurologist if he thought my speech issues were related to my AVM and he said “probably” not…even though speech loss was listed as a symptom in the booklet we’d received from the unit haha! Would just be great to get clarity on that topic.
All the best,
