Hi Rachel, This is my second attmept at sending a note, so hopefully it goes through. When I went to the doctor they ordered an MRI, it came back entirely clean. The doctor said that sometimes the neurotransmitters from the brain get mixed up en route to the the language area. He says there is nothign you can do for this (he did recommend, if I wanted, to go to a speech therapist, I declined). I typically speak fast to begin with so this may have something to do with the mixed messages. The doctor says it typically goes away (which I do feel it has for the most part).
Hope this helps!
The doctors told me that all looked great. He said that sometimes the neurotransmitters get mixed up and cause speech issues. He said I could see a speech therapist if it got worse (as only I could tell I was having speech problems, others didn't really pick up on it). But, other than that there is nothing really that they do for this. It usually goes away. I had an MRI done, and it came back entirely clean. Hope this helps.
