Could TEXTING be the latest way for doctors to diagnose strokes?
According to research, texting may be another way to spot stroke symptoms. We already know that garbled and slurred speech are a very clear sign of an upcoming stroke, but an incoherent text message could also be a sign of a stroke. A recent stroke victim could speak and write fine, but after further investigation, texts sent around the time of the stroke showed to be garbled up and filled with less English than normal. This could be used in the future as a sign for loved ones to help those who may be suffering from a stroke.

If this service gets used a lot, we may end up having to wait for an answer, but if we’re lucky, this could be a solution to those long waiting times in a queue or on a phone.
