I have screamed during a fight. Its been almost 5 months. From then I have been going through pitch problems during talking. There is always a feeling of hoarseness and breathless in my voice.

Screaming can cause damage in your vocal cords and result in voice change. Visit an ENT Doctor to rule out any damage in your vocal cords. Voice change can be cured by voice therapy by a speech pathologist. Take voice rest for sometime.

Problem of Stammering

Hi, I am Murli singh, speech therapist and audiologist. Me aj apko kuch haklana, jise stammering bhi kehte hai, ke baare me batana chahta hu. 

Stammering ek aisi problem hai jise hum bohot he aram se theek kar sakte hai agr use sahi tareeke se treat kia jaae. But zada tar is problem pe tab dhyan diya jata hai jab bacche bade hojate hai. Stammering ke liye agar hum speech therapy ki help le, to har haklaane ki problem ka solution sambhav hai. Haklana ek aisi samasya hai jisme agar baccha 5-7 saal ka hota hai, tab bacche ko kuch pata nahi chal pata. Lekin jab bacche bade hone lagte hai, jese ki jab bacche 18-19 saal ke hojate hai, tab doosre bacche mazak banane lagte hai. Aisa hone se baccha depression me chala jata hai aur acchi education hone ke bad bhi wo apna represesntation nahi de sakta. Speech therapy ke madhyam se haklaane ki beemari 100% tak theek ho sakti hai, agr uska sahi tarah se treatment kia jaae speech therapy dwara.

Ap logo ko ek baat vishesh baat ka dhyan rakhna chaie ki haklaane ke liye speech therapy ka bhi koi aisa jaadui kaam nahi hai ki turant theek hojae. Stammering treatment ke lie speech therapist sabse pehle apni kuch exercise aur kuch tips bataega. Apko mirror ke samne khade ho ke yeh bataega ki kon kon se words ko kis tarah se bolna hai or yeh dekhega ki kon kon se words me wo hakla raha hai. Haklane ke lie speech therapy treatment theek se diya jaae to 100% ye problem theek ho sakti hai. To dosto, agar apko haklane ki beemari se azaadi apani hai to aap isko speech therapy ke madhyam se theek kar sakte hai.

Humare yahan kaafi bacche aate hai jinhe is tarah ki problems hoti hai, aur zadatar bacche theek ho kar jaate hai agr wo humare instructions ko theek se follow kare to. Lekin aisa nahi hai ki 3-4 din speech therapy ke lie aane se haklana band hojaega. Speech therapy koi jaadui dawai nahi hai or na he haklane ki beemari ko theek karne ka koi tonic hai. 

Koi bhi ladka ya ladki kitne bhi educated ho, ya kitna bhi paisa ho, lekin agar shadi ki jab baat hoti hai, tab bohot dikkat aati hai. Shadi ke samay ya koi truth face karne ke samay baccho ko bohot problem aa sakti hai aur isse wo depression me bhi ja sakte hai. Islie haklane ki beemari ko theek karne ke lie speech therapy he ek aisa madhyam hai jisse hum ye problem poori tarah se theek kar sakte hai. Yeh ek psychological issue bhi ek, jese ki agar kisiko presentation deni ho or psychologically dimag me yeh aajae ki me hakla na jau to is wajah se maansik pareshani shuru hone lag jaegi.

Aisi problems ke lie agar ap treatment sahi se chahte hai to humare yahan se, Karkarduma ke aage Genisus Neurogen rehabilitation centre pe visit kar sakte hai. Humare yahan pe speech therapy, audiology ki suvidha di jaati hai. Iske ilawa ap hume Lybrate ke through bhi contact kar sakte hai.

Humne ek package banaya hua hai, agar aap us package ke instructions ko follow karenge to apka haklana poori tarah se samaaopt hojaega. To dosto agar apko meri baat samajh aai hai to aap humare paas aiye or humse treatment lijiye. Hum aapko Lybrate ke dwara poori tarah se madad karne ki koshish karenge, text messege k dwara bhi, audio/video call k dwara bhi

Meri taraf se aap sabhi ko bohot dhanyawad.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Stammering is" speaking with sudden involuntary pauses and a tendency to repeat the initial letters of words" or" say something with difficulty, repeating the initial letters of words and with sudden involuntary pauses" stammering could be due to two reasons. First reason is vocal cord misalignment. Second is psychological performance anxiety. First of all you should consult an ent specialist and evaluate your vocal chords. If there is problem, ent specialist will be able to correct it. If there is no problem with your vocal chords, the best option is stammer therapy. Take care.

Hi there, I am very glad for your question. Exercises for stammering Exercises are effective in treatment of physiological causes of stammering. In general, exercises are meant to provide strength to the organs associated with speech including tongue, lips, jaw, trachea and lungs. Many people who stammer have found these exercises to be beneficial in reducing the intensity and in some cases, completely curing stammering problem. The exercises should preferably be done every night in a secluded area, before going to bed. An exercise regimen comprising of the following exercises are beneficial in treatment and cure of stammering. Stammering Exercise #1 Loudly and clearly pronounce the vowels A, E, I, O and U. Be overly articulate and distort your face strongly, every time you utter the vowels. Stammering Exercise #2: Open your jaws as wide as you can without exerting hard. While the jaws are still open, lift your tongue upwards to touch the roof of mouth with the tip of your tongue. While still in contact with the roof of your mouth, drag the tip of your tongue towards the back of your mouth. When your tongues get stretched to the maximum (without hurting), hold there for few seconds. Next pull out your tongue outside the mouth and stretch it downwards as if attempting to touch the chin. Hold in that position for few seconds. Repeat 4-5 times. Stammering Exercise #3: Deep breathing exercise are very effective in curing speech disorders like stammering as they help to strengthen the respiratory organs and to relax neuromuscular tension that builds up in the body. Stammering can be controlled by learning to voluntarily control the rhythm of words by implementation of specific breathing patterns. There can be many variants of deep breathing exercises and one can choose any or all exercises which he/she is comfortable doing. Some of the variants are: A) Inhale deeply through mouth and exhale slowly, immediately after inhalation. B) Inhale deeply through mouth and push your tongue outside the mouth while exhaling. C) Inhale deeply through mouth, at the same time, press your chest muscles inward. Exhale slowly You can have your own variations of these deep breathing exercises, as long as they provide some respiratory motion, swelling of the abdomen and workout for chest and other speech organs. Do not overdo any exercise and bring variations, every one or two minutes. Stammering Exercise #4: Reading exercises are helpful in identification of patterns of repetition of syllables that cause stammering and thus reduce bottlenecks of fast reading. For this exercise, take a text and read it fast without laying emphasis on the quality of speech. Speedy reading will help a subconscious identification of each word. Prefer the speed to the quality of speech. Let the words be wrongly spoken and do not stop on any particular word or syllable. This exercise, if continued for 2-3 months is very effective in relaxing muscular tension and correcting all obstructions of the speech. Stammering Exercise #5 Singing is a very effective exercise for stammering. Singing helps the sufferer learn to better control breath and the phonatory muscles. Another very effective treatment for stammering involves participation in theatrical activities. Theatre helps shed down several inhibitions and is very effective remedy for stammering. Lifestyle Changes to Treat Stammering Fighting inferiority complex: Developing confidence in ones own ability to speak correctly is probably the only real solution to cure stammering. However building self-confidence when one makes nervous mistakes in every sentence is not easy. Inferiority complex is natural in people who stammer. Dealing with this complex is the most paramount task in overcoming stammering. Talking openly when the person approaches with the subject is vital in handling this complex. Maintaining a relaxed environment at home gives the child an opportunity to speak without stress. Watch out your breath: As a general thumb rule, one should breathe from the belly and not from the chest. Breathing from the belly naturally calms down and relaxes nervous and muscular tension and is a helpful habit in curing stammering and related disorders. Family support: Family support is of vital importance in treatment of stammering. Family members should use all possible means to deliver the person of his state of anxiety which is the only cause of stammering in a large number of cases. Family members must: Not punish or react harshly on a person who is stammering Listen carefully, when such a person speaks Adapt to speak slowly and not interrupt when a person stammers Be patient and wait for the person to complete words Not complete sentences or words when such a person is trying to speak. Consulting a speech therapist: Speech therapy has been used to cure or reduce the intensity of stammering. Speech therapist try to diagnose the causes of stammering and accordingly prescribe exercises, medications and/or scalpel intervention in certain cases. In case of physiological defects, speech therapy is compulsory to treat stammering. While speech therapist mainly concentrate on speech corrections, they may also adopt psychotherapies like hypnosis, impoco, role plays or cognitive behavioral therapy, if diagnosis suggests a psychological cause for stammering. Many therapist also use acupuncture, yoga spa treatment and other relaxation techniques to assist in treatment of stammering. Many cities have specialized speech therapy centers which offer intensive cures and therapies for stammering. Hearing aid: There are also some hearing aids that help to reduce or eliminate stammering. The electronic device records the user’s voice using a microphone and sends it back to his ears after a delay of about split seconds or at a slightly different frequency. Simultaneous speaking and the ability to listen to how it is heard by others is very effective in helping one who stammers correct his errors. Though familiarization with the device may take up to a few months, they often succeed in breaking the psychological barrier that prevents normal speech. Once the barrier is broken and the practitioner gains confidence, he/she can start speaking normally without using the device. Food for those who stammer While there are no particular foods that can be used to cure stammering, some food are known to be beneficial for speech organs. For instance, chewing Indian gooseberry, Almonds, Black pepper, Cinnamon and dried dates are known to clear speech congestions. Thus they can be taken internally in moderate quantities to address symptoms of stammering. Other recommendations for Treating Stammering Stammering is known to be aggravated by fatigue, anxiety or nervousness. A positive environment at home and at workplace is of paramount importance in helping a Person who stammers cure his disorder. Above all, stammering can not be cured overnight. It takes time and patience but the rewards at the end of it all are really worth the time. Stammering Trivia What’s common amongst Aristotle, Churchill, Darwin, Moses and Rousseau? Ans: They all stammered! I hope this helps. I wish you a very quick and speedy recovery.

Hello, I am 19 years old boy. I have stammering problem since childhood. Due to which I feel very depressed. Kindly suggest remedies for it. Till now I have not consulted to any doctor.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognized by a tense struggle to get words out. This makes it different from the normal non-fluency we all experience which includes hesitations and repetitions. Commonly it involves repeating or prolonging sounds or words, or getting stuck without any sound (silent blocking). Sometimes people put in extra sounds or words. Often people lose eye contact. Some people who stammer talk their way round difficult words so that you may not realize they stammer at all. This avoidance of words, and avoidance of speaking in some or many situations, is an important aspect of stammering. Stammering varies tremendously from person to person and is highly variable for the person who stammers who may be fluent one minute and struggling to speak the next.

Hello doctor, my daughter is 3.6 years old and studying in a good school, BT she does not reply if we asked something...
She is only 3.6 years old. It looks like you are being overprotective mother. Give her space to grow mentally, it does not look like any disease. If she cannot jump due to any physical reasons, do get her checked by doctor, but if she is stubborn, leave her alone, let her jump around at her will, let her study in a play school/ regular school. Remember too much discipline can be binding for growth of a kid.

Consult speech therapist. He will help to develop some vocal exercises. At the same time it is better to consult psychologist. May be it may cause for personality problems. Do not use any medicine. Therapy it is always best. Psychological counselling it improves your method of good thought process. It helps to improve your life style management. It improves your concentration levels. It is better to practice yoga and meditation. Do not be alone. Better to share your inner feelings and problems with your close friends and family members. It is better to spend most of the time with friends. Study hour completed later give priority for friends. Do not waste your time. Feel always comfortable and be flexible. Think always in a positive manner. Better to imitate to some one talk like them. Practice is very important at this stage. Better to communicate with new people it reduces your inferiority complex. Feel good always it is best method to entire life situations. Ok all the best.

I am suffering from puberphonia from last 12 years. I can't control my voice for longer time. And I have to give lot of pressure while speaking. How can I cure it?

MD PHYSICIAN

Puberphonia is a rare disorder in which adolescent males undergo voice changes to a much lower pitch due to a sudden increase in the length and thickness of the vocal folds. The muscles directly alongside the larynx become too tight, which causes the patient to constantly speak in high sound. Causes Emotional stress, Delayed development of secondary sexual characteristics Psychogenic etc. The treatment include voice therapy by speech language pathologist including :Cough, Speech range masking, Glottal attack before a vowel, Relaxation techniques to relax the laryngeal musculature, Lowering of larynx to appropriate position. Larynx manipulation: Surgery,Type III phonosurgery can be done, which includes surgical shortening and relaxation of the vocal cords. You can consult a ENT specialist for the same.
