    Thank you Paul. I did have an MRI, but because of the suggestions I've gotten here, I have changed doctors, and am getting another MRI in November, and I will have questions!

    Thank you Ray. My dr. Is sending me for an MRI and blood tests. Maybe neurologist after that. Best wishes for your recovery and healthy living!

    Thank you heathber. Yes, I have tried all of your good suggestions. Also drinking herbal tea instead of coffee, and getting up earlier, but no change, except the slurring etc starts earlier too. Well at least it happens while I am still at home in the mornings.

    Thank you ksmith. My CLL specialist has assured me that these stroke-like symptoms are not caused by the CLL. No one I have talked to has ever heard of slurring and unsteady gait symptoms occurring at the same time every day for an hour! I am hoping someone here might be able to shine some light on this issue.
  10. I went to Emerg. 7 months ago because I was slurring from 9-10 o'clock or so every morning, and also feeling unsteady on my feet. (I get up at7:30). I was assessed, and told I had had a "small stroke"; saw a cardiologist and neurologist; told to take an aspirin every morning. I am still having exactly the same symptoms every morning, and the doctors don't have an answer and they don't seem concerned. I am very grateful that it wasn't worse, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this kind of thing happen. I'm quite fine for the rest of the day, except if I have a regular beer; I can tolerate a very "light beer" only. (I'm 78, physically fit, but I do have chronic lymphocytic leukemia (watch and wait stage). Thanks in advance if you have any knowledge or ideas! Clare
