Odd Texts May Be a Sign of a Stroke

Posted on December 26, 2012

Autocorrect has led to its share of misunderstandings between people communicating via text.  But if autocorrect is not activated, could an incomprehensible text message actually be an early warning sign that an individual has suffered a stroke?  That’s the theory posited in new research found in the Archives of Neurology.  Doctors with Harvard Medical School say that digital communication will likely be used in the future to diagnose a neurologic condition, and they point to a case where a pregnant woman’s odd text messages to her husband prompted emergency care and a rapid diagnosis of a stroke.  With more and more people turning to digital means of communication, dystextia, they say, will be looked upon as a valid signal of a serious problem.
