I work very long days and hours and am experiencing some speech problems. I am a music teacher. In rehearsal, I will give instructions for what measure we're starting at and I will be looking at the number, but say another one. I will go to correct myself, and still say the wrong number. Sometimes I am not even aware that I say the wrong number.
Every day I experience the issue of mixing words together accidentally. It is like my brain can't choose which word is correct, so it says both. Sometimes when I talk, the words come out slurred or not pronounced correctly.
I know that I am tired often, but wanted you opinion on whether this is related to a neurological problem or just over-working. As an adult, I remember mixing words together, but it has gotten worse lately.
Please let me know if you think I should make an appointment with my doctor.
