Not sure

I am 50 years old and have been experiencing episodes where I lose grasp of the english language and when I speak from a printed page, I seem to get everything jumbled and choppy, as if I am a 1st grader. For instance, my main job has been talking on the phone to people with a script. Lately, I've been looking at the page as if it is all foreign to me. And when I speak, I somewhat flutter and mumble through the words because I seem to have no clue what those funny characters on the paper are for.
I don't even know if I am in the right forum or not. This is really beginning to bother me as I have always prided myself on having a firm grasp of the english language. I went to a doctor thinking I had a mini-stroke. That was ruled out through bloodwork. I also had an MRI to check for lesions or tumors in/on my brain. The results came back negative.
It was suggested to be the onset of dementia, but from learning more about it, I found that the symptoms I have would come in one of the later stages of dementia. I'm clueless and concerned. Any ideas?

Re: Not sure

Wow, this is so strange. I am so sorry that you are going through this. I would have thought it was a type of stroke also. I am glad that the tests so far are negative. Could hormone imbalance or stress cause this? I am hoping that you are getting better.
