Mistakes in text messages make you laugh out loud. But those garbled words could be a sign of your health and it's part of new medical study.
Researchers are studying a man whose misspelled words actually led to a stroke diagnosis.
While visiting Detroit, the 40-year-old was sending incoherent texts to his wife.
During a checkup at Henry Ford Hospital, a doctor found no problems with the man.
But then he asked the man to text... the doctor needs a new Blackberry. The words came out jumbled.
Doctors found the man actually had a slight weakness on the right side of his face-- and they were able to treat him for a stroke.
This study is being presented Tuesday at a meeting of the American Academy of Neurology in San Diego.
