Sounds like you might be experiencing this bug, which has actually come up on this site previously (related question here). – eldarerathis Oct 7 '11 at 13:30

There are many people facing similar problem here,

The solutions they came up with was:

  1. Use handcent SMS app instead of stock SMS app
  2. Keep low number of messages in inbox
  3. Delete read message
  4. Waiting for Gingerbread update which will fix it

If I were you I'd choose number 1.
