Thanks for the note. I didn’t take the Paxil this morning and I feel great today! It definetely was having some bad effects on me so will have to find something else. Yeah, not that good normally either finding words but this was horrible.
BruceI’m not on Paxil, and I have trouble with words–if I want to say “Go to the table and get the pencil”, I can’t think of either table or pencil. I’ve always thought this was a result of my GD or of the RAI, but thought Doc and others would not believe it. I use the word “thing” a lot, as in “Go to the thing and get the, the, the pencil”Hang in uh, uh, uh, uh…… there! Karen
This is a very common symptom of GD. A type of aphasia, inability to speak in an organized manner. Cannot retrieve words quickly and also have trouble remembering what you’re talking about so that the end of your sentences get garbled. Lose your train of thought. Many of us first year NGDF people were in a medical study sponsored by Univ of No Carolina. Showed this was the most common neurological symptom. If I remeber correctly, it affected 83% of GD patients in the NGDF.
