What causes stuttering?

This morning out of the blue I had an episode of stuttering while having a phone conversation....never, ever done this before. It was short and has not reoccurred throughout the day....what do you think? Female, 68, healthy, taking no meds jphq@aol/com

The sudden stuttering seems to be of psychological reason, rather than any underlying abnormal issue. In the majority of the cases, it is either anxiety or stress induced.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
