hi, i have been having a few problems putting sentences together and explaining things. in my head i will think of what im going to say but when i come to actually say it. its like the words jumble up and i have to put the sentence back together again before i can say it. i have been forgetting words i use daily in mid sentence and i have to keep telling people to bear with me so i can think of how i was going to say what i wanted to. most of the time i will repeate myself 2 or 3 times in the same sentence trying to correct myself and make it make sense but this is causing a few problems because im saying the same thing 3 times and people may of understood it the first time and then i will carry on explaining it because in my head it didnt make sense. i also think im saying words but ill say different words instead for example i was supposed to say'i start at 9 and finish at 5'but it will come out as'i start at 9 and finish at 9'but i will think i said 5 i was wondering if you knew?

It looks like you have a doubt, that you may be having a neurological issue like Dementia or Memory loss issues or conditions like Alzheimer's disease.

The underlying condition cannot be determined without a proper medical examination of your mental and neurological functions.

Hence it would be best that you consult with a neurologist and seek a proper medical opinion.

I hope this helps.
