Could excessive drooling along with poor swallowing be signs of a stroke?
Needs a neurological examination.
Thanks for your query.
I am here to answer your query.
I understand your concerns but these drooling and swallowing symptoms are hard to interpret just on the basis of history.
A neurological examination is required, so I suggest to visit a neurologist in person. Stroke may cause such symptoms which can be confirmed with an MRI of the brain.
However, there may be other neurological causes of these symptoms as well, which needs to be guided by a well-taken history and a meticulous neurological examination.
Hope that helps.
