    I stutter occasionally, and it always amuses me when I do because I don't see it coming at all. It's like my mouth forgets how to move back a certain syllable.

    I also frequently mash words together... I am FAMOUS for mixing up the first few letters of words, or entire words.

    But, I'm just socially inept. I do perfectly fine on the TTY, or when giving speeches... But when trying to converse face to face with someone who isn't a close friend, I'm no good.

    Hopefully your stutter is nothing serious!

    Stutter can also be a side effect of medication.

    3 yrs ago, I had emergency back surgery when some dumbass forgot the parking brake on her truck and actually ran herself over (whiseling and looking around innocent like because certainly I am not that big of a dumb ass).

    anyway, I recovered nicely, but had trouble with weird infections for about 6 months. Then one day the seizures started. They were temporal lobe seizures and I didn't even realize I was having them!

    a bajillion tests later some quack asshat put me on topomax. Seizures got worse, he upped the dose, I got sick, he upped the dose, more infections.... more strange symptoms, my teeth started to fall out, hair too! I couldn't function, and thankfully have no memery of much of this. I became soo ill, that my friend stormed me into the ER, I was admitted, and after 2 days they discovered that I had an infection from the surgery that had infiltrated my abdominal cavity, killing part of my vagus nerve... and causing seizures.

    unfortunately in the day I was first admitted I had not eaten and was just soooooo thirsty I drank tond of tea. The vagus nerve that was damaged left me with a paralyzed stomach and upper intestine.

    Many many days worth of the highest dose of topomax had sat in my stomache, and on day 2 in the hospital, after not having a dose in 2 days, the tea I was guzzeling dissolved the pills and I had a near fatal dose hit my bloodstream.


    how does this tie in?? well, the brain damage from the overdose left me with an on and off stutter.

    I have a strange sense of humor about the whole thing. At first the stutter gave me anxiety which made me stutter worse... But now I just laugh it off.

    Oh, and now I have uncontrollable cussing. ohwait. I had that before. shit.

    Anywho... go get it checked. Make sure you bring a list of all meds, vitamins, supplements etc that you take!

    I would urge you to get it checked out also. It's probably nothing, but you will know and you won't have to worry about it. There are so many things that can happen and the person feels just fine, no problems whatsoever. But I would find out for sure.

    I don't ''stutter'' but I get kinda hung up(ahead of myself) and I do forget what I am saying in the middle of saying it.It does get worse for me when I am nervous and when they play with my neurontin dosage.If it's not normal for you,see a doc asap...if you do have a stutter normally,it's not as concerning(but I'd mention it the next time you get a check-up)

    I've been getting hung up on simple words like "the" for years. I got an MRI/CAT scan (whichever is the head where they send you in the big donut looking thing) done about 8.5 years ago for an unrelated car accident. But they obviously didn't see anything in the MRI to be alarmed at. Who knows. All I know is that this is normal for me and has been going on for quite some time.

    PM- ask whoever told you of you'd been doing it for long. Or talk to friends/family. Maybe they didn't know that you didn't know you did it or something.

    This. People are strange, rather than embarrass you by telling you that your shirt is on inside out for example many will say nothing letting you suffer the unknown embarrassment of going through the day that way. It seems to be worse the closer they are to you. In the case of speech issues, once we are adults, people tend to say nothing assuming a) you know, and b) you don't want to be reminded of it. Children on the other hand will jump on the opportunity to make fun of something like that so one learns very quickly of the problem. When I was young I couldn't pronounce words with an S properly. A word like "this" came out like "thith."

    So it may be something you've been dealing with for years and no one ever said anything, or it may be something medical. Won't know until you poke into your own history and check with a physician.

    ...didn't read all of page 2. I think it is very interesting that IF you've had it all the long that you have not been aware of it. Your family should certainly be able to tell you if you have or not! I get words mixed up sometimes - I'm stuck on calling the glass window in the car a 'mirror' ... I've started keeping notes to see if there is any pattern or increase, in which case I would get it checked. Right now, tho, I think it's just brainfarts....

    lol that's funny, that's probably why when I first came to Michigan I fit right in. I could never pronounce the t or the s

    When Im trying to talk faster than my mouth can keep up Ill end up getting stuck on a word and say it a number of times. I always realize Im doing it though and typically to stop I make a strange 'blaaahh' type noise, which makes whoever Im talking to laugh because its out of the blue (I dont think anyone realizes Im saying the same word a bunch of times until I do that) and I pause while they laugh then start over (and usually Ill say something along the lines of 'lets start that over') I also mash words together and mix them up when talking to fast. I do have anxiety so when taking to certian people I start talking really fast and the word mashing gets horrible lol but sometimes I do it while talking to my husband or family just because Im talking faster than my mouth can keep up lol

    Everyone mixes words up from time to time. Also, not to be an alarmist but I also know someone who started stuttering and he went to the doctor and it was a brain tumor which was successfully removed.

    okay so i been working on this. i think it has always been there but lately i have been going thru A LOT of personal stress which really has me mixing up my thoughts which i think has been bringing this out more then usual which has brought this to my families attention.

    i have noticed when i am thinking (like when typing) I do not have this issue. I also noticed that when I talk to Peanut I don't get stuck at least not bad. I am relaxed with him though. Yes, I talk to Peanut but like if I tell him "go get the ball" it comes out as "go get the ball" not "go get th th th th the the the ball"
