    When I was in college, I had to take medicine for depression. It made me stammer when I talked. I had never had this and it made me not talk to anyone, it was really hard. I was able to go off the meds luckily and didn't have future problems. Have you talked to your doctor about it? Maybe it is anxiety or something that could be helped.. Hope this helps

    Hi, you may have performance or social anxiety. See if webMD has an anxiety page or community or search it for social anxiety disorder. cognitive behavior therapy is very effective and there are a few FDA approved medications that could help.. please ask your doctor for ideas as this is a pretty treatable anxiety condition
