Speech Difficulty (dysarthria) - Autoimmune Cerebellar Ataxia
I was diagnosed with autoimmune cerebellar ataxia a couple years ago. I have some balance problems, but my biggest problem is difficulty speaking. They say “slurring” is the speech problem associated with this disorder, but I don’t really slur. I talk slowly and it’s difficult to get words out. And I skip or mispronounce vowels, which I think is called scanning speech. Anyway, I was wondering if damage to certain parts of the cerebellum cause speech issues? Or is that unknown? Like what determines if I have speech problems and am not in a wheelchair?
