  • Hi Baily97. The same thing is happening to me right now. It's to the point that I get nervous and forget my thoughts in mid sentence and I'll say the stupidest things. It's so embarrassing. I'm a VERY social person, but I'm getting to the point now where I don't want to talk in fear of saying something that makes absolutely no sense at all.

  • Yes it happened to me and the more I thought of it the more it would happened. I would also forget things.. but it has calm down the more you give it attention the more it will happened hope this helps

  • Hi Baily. I know how your feeling. I just can't find the right words even when I want to say something. My mind would just go blank mid thought so I can't finish what I was saying. It's so frustrating. And it sounds very choppy; there's no fluidity.

  • Thank you so much guys, i honestly thought i was losing it or something. I feel so relieved hearing that im not the only one with this problem. 😢

  • Absolutely. I feel cognitively slow at times. It's to my understanding it's the anxious mind, over worked, over stressed.

  • Hi, I would definitely have your thyroid examined and tsh levels checked. I had this problem and a problem with finding words when speaking at the time I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. After much of my own research on this subject, I learned that's it is widely accepted that this can be a symptom of thyroid problems. Wishing you the best.

  • Yes i also do have low thyroid 🙁 have you gotten better from it?

  • Yes, although it does happen sporadically still.
