About the symptom

Aphasia is a problem with communication. In receptive aphasia, the patient cannot understand written or spoken language. Also, the words a patient uses sound normal but do not make sense. This communication problem may happen as a temporary single episode associated with a migraine headache, a seizure, or a transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Possible causes

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS)

    Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system), which may lead to permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.

Related serious diseases

  • Aphasia

    Aphasia is a disorder that results from damage to areas of the brain that produce and process language. It can occur suddenly after a stroke or head injury or develop slowly from a growing brain tumour or disease. A person with aphasia can have trouble speaking, reading, writing, and understanding language, and the severity can vary.
