My TMS pain increases usually between 3-5 P.M. I have always been fluent and talkative but in the past year I have trouble getting "s" words out. This mostly happens later in the day, and when I am seeing clients. It is generally when I am experiencing the most anxiety during the day. I doubt very much that I have had a stroke and feel it is psychogenic, given everything else my body does to fool me. I have a feeling neurological testing will be another endless road, like the MRIs for my spine... My brother stuttered in early childhood, and even now has unclear speech. I am aware of being anxious for a good part of the day. If you are unfamiliar with stammering as a TMS person who is already diagnosed as having mind-body syndrome, I should probably ask for some tests to be performed. Although I would rather be in Philadelphia!
