Hand stalls when writing certain numbers?

Main Question or Discussion Point

When writing the number 3, my hand seems to stutter or stall slightly before i complete the 3. This only happens some of the time though. I am only 16 years old but I have also suffered a minor concussion. Does this happen to anyone else, could it correlate with a deeper issue?

... could it correlate with a deeper issue?
It well could. I haven't heard of such a symptom before, at least not at your age anymore. So I definitely recommend to consult a doctor who can make some better tests than writing 3s. Best would probably be a neurologist, but you can first consult your normal doctor and eventually ask him what you should do next. It doesn't have to be something serious, but it could, and you should get this checked. And with all medical things: the earlier the better.

Well, the answers there are not very helpful. As I mentioned earlier, it could be nothing at all, but if it is not, you should get it checked early, especially as you mentioned a concussion. I'm no doctor, so I don't have experiences with it. The internet is certainly the wrong place to ask for: you will receive all kinds of answers, given by people you wouldn't lend a dime in real life and so on. That's why a professional person, who can see and talk to you face to face should have a look - and such persons are doctors.

Sure, I could do you the favor and say it's a harmless tick and you can forget about this. But this would be irresponsible, as I cannot judge this via the internet. And youth isn't a shield against illnesses. I've known someone who had a stroke in her twenties, myself needs glasses since I was a young kid. I also had hoped it would go away again, and only went to see an optician as I couldn't read the blackboard anymore. So the only possible and responsible answer is: go see a doctor and show him what happens.

Before such answers will arrive, I close this thread. There is nothing more that can be said.
