Hello, My name is Claudia and I am 32 years old. On August 14 2009 I was diagnosed with a partial seizure disorder. The siezure causes me to lose the ability to speak. I can communicate otherwise writing, pointing ECT. They don’t know why I get these seizures as I only started having them in August. I have not had any head injury and they did all the necessary head scans and I do not have any tumors or blood clots. Could my seizures be an Aphasia. please let me know. Thank you.

Dear Claudia,
Seizures can cause disruptions in the ability to speak. Without seeing you, I cannot give an opinion about whether or not you have aphasia.

It is most important that you have expert medical assistance in trying to figure out what is causing your seizures. I would strongly recommend that you see a neurologist who knows about seizures if you have not already done so. I also suggest that you see a Speech-Language Pathologist, who can assess your speech and language, and give you guidance in how to manage your communication problem.

Best of luck to you,
Margaret Forbes
