    Why do I recently stutter a lot in speech and have a serious problem concentrating?
    I'm a 24 years old female, I recently noticed that I struggle a lot whenever I have a conversation with my friends where I keep stuttering and jam words together and the concentration issue got even serious, I can't concentrate anymore in classes, I also tend to forget lately a lot of common things like my friends names or some actions I did in the morning or even some ideas while speaking.

    Can this be a psychological problem or physical one? How can I get back to normal without taking any meds.

    Fyi I didn't have any accident or trauma before, and I don't have anything worrying me more than this issue, I was healthy and could speak in a flowing way with no problem, but in july, 2018 after overworking for my final exams I got really sick (throwing up + first time having anxiety) so after that I did a blood work twice that showed abnormal results (high t4 [29] and normal tsh [1.42]), I repeated the same test 4 months ago in another laboratory and the results came normal and the doctor said that it could've been a mistake.

    Could this be related to my condition?

    Plz help this is starting to destroy my social life T_T

    I'm surprised your doctor didn't recommend a therapist to diagnose this possible anxiety/emotional issue or at the least a speech therapist, or both. Are you done with school and the stresses it brings?

    If you are in school, hopefully you have counselors, or therapists to help you. I’m not a speech therapist, but as a teacher, I have stutterers in class every few years. Speech therapists provide breathing exercises, and other ways to help with stuttering. I’ve seen great success over the years.
