Thank you all

Thanks for the advice re paracetamol and gabapentine I am still only on one hundred mil and it's helping with pain m. As well as that I've started dreaming I haven't dreamt since I was a child never gone into a deep enough sleep but on the other side I'm stuttering the brain fog still seams settled in getting a lot of headaches and I'm more exhausted than ever hence the reason I'm still on one hundred mills. A couple of nights I ve slept all night and even tonigh this is the first time I've woke up any suggestions re stuttering any one please as its driving me nuts especially when I'm forgetting rest of sentence xxxxx

ps good morning hope today finds every one hopefully relatively pain free and still asleep arming warm soft hugs out there for all x x.

Hi my friend,

I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are stammering, and I sincerely hope that you receive some wonderful suggestions on this issue.

Since my wife Julie has MS, she sometimes has a problem getting understood when she talks as she can stammer a little or mumble without realising it. Our GP sent in a referral for ''A speech and language therapist (SLT)''. They work with adults as well as children. It may be something that is worth discussing with your GP?

I have pasted you a link below to the NHS Choices cache on stammering as they have a long list of potential treatments that may be worth checking out: 


I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Hi Treewade,

I do hope the Gabapentine does you good. I was prescribed this with Naproxen (anti-inflammatory) and took it for approx six month. I persevered but the brain fog it gave me was toooooooooo much, so my GP weaned me of it. So unfortunately it didn't work for me.

Everyone is different, and what one medicine helps one person, may not be suitable for another.

Pls keep us up-dated and I wish you the very best of luck.

Soft and warm hugs,

Elizabeth xx

I stutter all the time and get my words muddled up, I even talk to myself !  I have found the best thing to do is just laugh.  Sounds daft but the more upset I got the more I stuttered.  I stood in the middle of a cafe last week mumbling because I had forgotten what I got up for, it was a knife.  Yep people may look at me strangely but oust say 'Fibro moment'.  Try not to be too hard on yourself xxxx


Good to hear your getting needed sleep and less pain, and maybe the fatigue will get a bit less as you catch up on sleep. l talk gobbledy gook at times, also type it, l was a bit eccentric as natural now more so due to health affects.  l,m sure some think its alzheimers, thought it myself, with memory probs, poor concentration, but a lot of the time, forgot what l was going to say haha, back, l can laugh about it, and cant help what others think. Maybe when more rested and pain less you could try to reduce a bit one night in three or doseage, see how it goes.  l think anyone half decent wont judge or mock and understand, many have simular problems for one reason or another.  Hope you find a balance to suit, good luck


I do sympathise with you over the stuttering, it is a problem sometimes have.  I know that I have withdrawn into myself because it is embarrassing when talking to someone and I feel that I'm making a fool of myself.  The idea of seeing your GP about it is a good one as well as speech therapy.  As for the dreaming, I used to take fluoxetine and while I was on that I had the most amazing dreams.  Now that I've stopped so have the dreams.  Anyway I wish you all the best of luck and hope you soon start feeling a bit better.

Hi your Post is rather spooky as having already  contracted a cold and chest infection along with a really uncontrollable episode of shaking and trembling.  I was taken to QMC Hospital. Big dose of anti-bionics followed by Chest X-ray. I was told , after my 4 weeks of Sepsis to expect down sides with colds infections etc. The 'Spooky' part is that whenever I get het up or can't control hyper swings I also suffer from stuttering attacks and fail to finish sentences or can't pick up the thread of what I was saying so you are 'not alone'. Sleep well tonight and 'Sweet One's'


Thank you xxxxxx I have been sleeping better but the brain fog n stuttering make me want t cry. I go bk to docs on Monday hopefully they ll help xxxxx
