I am 16, 111 pounds, and 5'0 tall girl. I recently will see something and start to describe it in my mind but when I try to tell someone else my words come out all jumbled or completely wrong. Like I'll see something on someone that I like and I'll think 'Wow, I like how the red on her bag complements her skin' but when I try to tell a friend that it comes out "Bag, skin well, red, good looks, cool." that's the worst case though most of the time it'll be something small like that I'll think 'That orange shirts awesome' but it'll come out as "That yellow shirts awesome" its just one word but it still messes me up because I knew the right color or word and then people will look at me like I'm an idiot. Please help me know what's wrong.

  • Sounds like a type of paraphasia. That is a language/speech disorder. But paraphasia usually develops after some type of injury to the brain. If this is new, you might want to see a doctor. http://www.reference.com/browse/paraphasiahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraphasiahttp://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/medical/paraphasia.htm

Have you noticed that any of your body parts are numb or tingly? My very first symptom was feeling like I was wearing a band-aid on my finger even though I wasn't. We thought nothing of it until I lost sharp vision in one eye. My case aside, this could be any disorder affecting the verbal expression part of the brain. Try looking up neurological symptoms to see if you've noticed any others. Do bear in mind though that we all get tongue-tied from time to time (there's likely an additional symptom if it's a big problem).
