I started stammering since 7 the class. Now I am 24 years old. My biggest challenge is being audible and clear to people. It has created a big hindrance for me while communicating. I cannot talk normally , like others do, which has cost me my last job, as I was into customer service (voice). Please suggest me a permanent solution. I presume this is genetic , as my grand father also stammers .

Stammering can be made lesser only and only by speech therapy. So you should take the help of a speech therapist. Also, i'd suggest you to visit a psychologist as confidence plays a great role in dealing with this problem. I'd suggest you to speak very slowly, word by word. People may make fun of this but believe me, slowly you'll get better at it. Hope your query is answered. Feel free to ask if you have any doubts. Wishing you good health.

I'm 23 years old male. I'm unable to pronounce the letters r, re,RU, ir pls help me to find the solutions pls.

MBBS
General Physician, Mumbai
One of the main reasons for difficulty to pronounce is fear and anxiety. Reduce your speed of speech for now, thus the pronouncing difficulty would decrease and fluency of your speech would become better. When fluency of speech reaches normal, then you gradually increase speed of speech, thus the overall speech can become as original. Because stress and anxiety increases difficulty of speech, you should also do transcendental meditation. How meditation affects health? it has been scientifically proved that meditation not only helps the mind but also body because controlled mind and purification of consciousness leads to better lifestyle and improved habits of food, sleep etc which in turn leads to better overall health. Most diseases have their roots in uncontrolled mind and impure consciousness. So do transcendental meditation by finding and reading iskcon books, either from internet and/or from your nearest iskcon center. Hope this helps,

You have a problem with fear. The fear has to do with people and more so if they are people in authority. If you deal with that fear, then a lot of your stammering will stop. Talk to a counselor and sort that out. There will still be a residue affect left because of pure habit. This can be resolved by some exercises, which should begin with real earnest right away. Practice speaking aloud in a closed room, but this time, choose words for which your stammer is most. Also practice singing sentences but ending the last word as a statement that is read. Next time end with two words stated, then three words etc. The lip exercise: with tight pressure press and roll the tip of your tongue against the edge of your lips, clockwise first and then anticlockwise, as many times as you possibly can. Purse your lips into an ‘O’ and withdraw it back stretching it like when you say an ‘E’, several times a day. Drop your lower jaw and flip it left to right and right to left, as many times as you can to loosen it. Practice making a resonating sound by increasing and decreasing the volume within the same breath. Sing the vowels A, E, I, O, U stretching each vowel as much as you can.

Dear lybrate user. You are 17. Most probably you must have experienced a voice change from your earlier years. I see this as a transition stage. Horse voice is common during transition stage. I suggest you continuously sing many movie songs and it will clear your throat and voice problems. Don't worry. Take care.

I am a singer by profession from mumbai. I'm suffering from vocal nodules from last 6 months. I have a big size polyp in my right vocal chord. Its been 4 months m taking regular treatment. Homeopathy medicine plus vocal therapy from a renowned doctor in mumbai. But still only 20 to 30% recovery is there. I'm really tensed as my whole career depends on my voice. please suggest what should I do to get recover soon.

MD - Psychiatry

Vocal cord nodules are benign (noncancerous) growths on both vocal cords that are caused by vocal abuse. Over time, repeated abuse of the vocal cords results in soft, swollen spots on each vocal cord. These spots develop into harder, callous-like growths called nodules. The nodules will become larger and stiffer the longer the vocal abuse continues. Vocal abuse takes many forms and includes: allergies smoking tense muscles singing coaching cheerleading talking loudly drinking caffeine and alcohol (dries out the throat and vocal cords) you have to consult an ent surgeon for proper therapy, do not play with your voice.

At puberty as the size of your larynx grows, so also does the size and vibrations of your vocal cords, due to the production of testosterone in your body this unusual phenomenon of your voice change fluctuations will remain for a few months, your voice change will then settle down.

Your complaints sound like you are having mild with pseudo dementia. But still, get your thyroid status checked again. Do serum free t3, free t4 and tsh levels. If they are not normal you might need to increase your thyroid medications. If your thyroids are normal then consult me for treatment of depression. Take care.

I am a Marketing professional. Most of the time I am very calm and normal. When I see some wrong things I becoming violent and once I become angry I loose my control and speak whatever it comes and do whatever it may be and this status will be last not more than 10 minutes. Kindly suggest some treatments and some medicines for it.

MBBS, MD Psychiatry, DNB Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Nagpur
Being otherwise calm and but at times having an uncontrolled anger outburst for few minutes that you later regret, is suggestive of either a personality problem, impulse control disorder or underlying agitated depression. These are just possibilities which can be evaluated and managed accordingly by consulting a psychiatrist. At times unresolved mental stress may also lead to such symptoms'i would therefore suggest you to consult a psychiatrist for the same. Try mental relaxation exercises like deep breathing for 15-20 minutes, yoga or meditation etc.
