Hi doctor,

I have some speech problem. I miss the word while talking and I am not conveying it properly. I have to stop and think for a while to continue the conversation. This happens many times a day. My current medication is tablet Vilazine 40. Please help me.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • If this problem is there from your childhood, then this is a part of your stammering.
  • If you have developed this problem later in life, then you would need to get an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) of the brain. Also, check your thyroid profile and vitamin B12 levels.
  • These investigations would help you to analyze the cause behind your issues if any.
