Neurologist 's  Response
Hi,

You need to be evaluated by a neurologist to determine the cause of your slurred speech. If MRI is normal, it rules out brain stroke. However, we should also rule out other neurological causes such as myasthenia gravis and dystonia, which could present with slurred speech.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist
