I am a 21 year old female with no health conditions. About 5 months ago, I started to experience problems with my speech and it started at work. I work at a Pharmacy as a technician and it started when i was at the drive thru helping a customer out. When a customer drive thru, i will greet them with "Hey, Welcome to so and so pharmacy", however, I started having a hard time getting those words out and it happens at the time i greet them. Even simple words like "Hey" are hard to get out even though i can clearly form them in my head. I am able to form those words in my head and i know what to say but i just can't get those words out. It started to worsen to the point where i can't greet them at all and they have to say something to me to initiate the conversation. The problem extended to the front of the pharmacy as well as in school, daily life, and talking on the phone. I have seen my doctor about 2 months ago and shared this problem with her. She thinks it might be stress and may be a problem with getting oxygen to my brain (circulation). My lab test came out normal except for a slightly elevated cholesterol level and low vitamin D level which i have been taking medications for. I started exercising to help with my circulation and have done stress relieving activities and changed my lifestyle to reduce stress and nothing has helped. Currently, i have started to get anxious whenever a car drive up because of my awareness of the problem. In addtion to this, i have not experienced any injuries or traumatic experiences. Is there any other tests anyone can recommend, specialists I should see or theories? Thank you.
