Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I have severe slurred speech, difficulty saying and finding words, and slow speech. It is intermittent; sometimes it's very bad, other times I sound normal! I have been to the ER recently once when my upper lip was extremely swollen (diagnosed as angioedema) and again with chest pain/pressure which I feared heart attack or stroke (it was not either, thankfully). I have extreme anxiety and now depression, probably as a result of the stress of this situation. I am extremely weak and fatigued. I don't know what is wrong? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
