Korsakoff and curious stuttering symptom


Registered User

Wonder if anyone has experienced these symptoms. My brother (56) has Korsakoff's and starts to stutter very badly when he gets confused about an appointment almost like he is having a panic attack. It only lasts a few minutes then subsides. I searched the forums but can't find any examples of this intermittent behaviour.

Hi, I believe that the amnesia associated with the Korsakoffs brings on speech problem/aphasia, due to the damage to the brain. It can be intermittent and almost seem like the person is intoxicated, but is a behaviour associated with the Korsakoffs.
