In conversation I find I sometimes have trouble finding an expressive word that I know very well. It is disconcerting to pause and watch people waiting for me to tell them a certain word. For example, I was trying to use the word 'raffle' but couldn't think of it. Also 'door prize'. I wonder if it is aphasia symptom. I have no trouble with memory, just an occasional word.
