Tim had a tremor episode at school today, and after it was over he became unable to speak English. Not gibberish like one might expect from a stroke underway, but some other language. He seems fine in every other way, just talking in words I don’t understand. He and I are on our way to the doctor.
Will update this post when I have news.
Update, 2:42 pm – We’re back from the doc with an appointment for an EEG for Monday morning and a referral to another neurologist. Tim’s doc is working to rule out some sort of seizures, again.
Update, 12:43 am – Tim had another bout of not being able to speak in familiar language, this time with severe head pain at about 8 pm, so we went to the ER. He had blood tests and a CT scan, both of which came back normal. The ER doc was very kind and attentive, spent a lot of time with Tim, and wishes he could have gotten to the bottom of it for us. Recommends going ahead with the EEG and the neurology appt.
Round and round… please can we get off this ride?
