I have had a problem for over 4 years that I can't get an answer to. There are times when I can't recognize, pronounce or sound out a word, which only happens from anywhere between a few seconds to a few minutes. This happens all through the day, whether I am reading a book, a magazine, a newspaper, anything. It also happens while I am speaking to people, I can't pronounce the word I am trying to say. Many people think it might be that I can't find the word I want to say, but that is not the case. I know what I want to say, which words, I sometimes can't pronounce the words correctly. I have had tests done, and all come out with no abnormalities to them, yet I still have this problem. It was suggested I go for neuropsychological testing by the neurologist who did the tests. This problem is bothersome, as I am in school and I work full-time, and I do not want this problem to escalate further.
