Our expert says:
With your history of high blood pressure and the episode where you have been admitted, you may have had a small stroke in your speech area (typically you know what you want to say but the word comes out wrong, or you know what you want to say but can't say the word) I think you should see a neurologist just to check this as you may need a brain scan. If you don't have a medical aid, your GP could maybe refer you to an academic hospital neurology clinic for these tests.
