Slurred and Garbled speech
My sister in law is having slurred and garbled speech, and this last episode she didn't know her own last name, or her son's name. She recognized me but couldn't come up with my name. She is off balance when she walks, sometimes walking into doorways or the couch.
We have thought in the past that she was taking too much much pain medicine and muscle relaxers. (she was in a horrible accident a couple of years ago and broke her back in 2 places, ribs and her hip, she now has rods in her back and hip.)
Well today was the worst day she has ever had and was taken to the ER for a drug screen and it came back clean. So now we are all really confused because this whole time we have been trying to get her to go to rehab and get help and we find out that's not what is going on.
Can you tell me what might be happening? She said a while back that one of her old doctors said that she had lupus but she has never been treated for it so we didn't know if that was true either.
Thank you very much,
