To start this off I have had a lot of stress for the past year. My mum died then I fell pregnant and my babys had breathing problems since birth which at times have been pretty serious. Then I had a miscarriage. I've been getting headaches near my left forehead for a few months now . now this is what is worrying me the most important can be talking and the wrong word comes out or won't come out at all like today I asked dh to put something in the bag but I said basin then toke me a while to say bag it's hard to explain but it's getting worse. Could it be stress? I hate to think what else it could be

Please don't think too long about what it could be and go and get checked by your doctor. Not wishing to alarm you but mini strokes (or called TIA's) can present like this. It can also be related to nerve damage caused by a bad back (a friend had an episode where she was fully functioning but couldn't get words out, doc suspected TIA but turns out it was something to do with a nerve at the back of her neck). It could be stress but don't ignore it and self diagnose.

Please see gp. No one here can diagnose you. Sorry to hear you've had such a tough time. flowers

I had the same thing with words for a while with stress after I had my 2nd baby. I would go to say 'fridge' and I'd say 'washing machine'. I was pointing to black grapes in the supermarket and I said 'olives' and we hardly ever even eat olives. My GP said it was stress. It went away after a few days. Go and see your GP and see what they say, it'll put your mind at rest.

It sounds like you've had a horrendously stressful year, and stress certainly can cause you to do this. But go to the GP anyway to put your mind at rest flowers
