Hi Mr. Lybrate-user I am sure your speech is affecting your day to day communication when needed, I am extremely sorry to say stammering cannot be cured with any medications, you need to attend speech therapy to make your speech better.

I am suffering from stammering and I am 19 years old, female. While at home and talking to other people I stammer less but whenever I find myself in public places when I have to face public and speak I stutter alot and sometimes I have blockage due to which I am unable to even speak, I also get nervous and my stomach also hurts while speaking, I also start making faces while speaking and it gets difficult to take out words out of my mouth. So should I consult a speech therapist or a Public speaking and Personality development course ?I am confused.

Dear lybrate-user, You can consult a speech therapist and attend a personality development course. Add, a clinical psychologist to the list. Those therapists know the extent of your problem and their limitations. At some stage, they may refer you to a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist may offer an antidepressant and/or anxiolytic drug for few months in addition. I hope you have done ENT check up.

Vocal nodule unless it becomes hardened can be made to resolve by voice rest and preventing voice abuse. Are you a singer. Since vocal chords are a sensitive area, better get 2nd opinion before proceeding to surgery. All the best.

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.

Steps for Keeping Your Voice Healthy Drink plenty of water. Moisture is good for your voice. ... Try not to scream or yell. ... Warm up your voice before heavy use. ... Don't smoke. ... Use good breath support. ... Use a microphone. ... Listen to your voice. Begin with the solfege symbol "do" while singing the pitch. Hold out this note to the extent of your comfort. Then, sing and signal the note "re" while holding it out. Then, go back down and sing the note "do."

lybrate-user there is no operation or medicine for Stammering. Unless it is diagnosed due to neurological cause. It is a habit associated with lack of self confidence and thus fear. So go to an experienced Speech Therapist.

Jab bolta hu to meri aawaj bahut karak and fati fati aati h. M aaisa kya kru ki mera gala thik hojae and awaj thik hojaye.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS

Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

Stress and Stuttering - How to Deal with It?

Stress and Stuttering - How to Deal with It?

Stuttering is a type of speech disorder wherein, a person speaks slower than normal. It is quite  common in the age group of 3 to 8. The relationship between stress and stuttering has been pondered over for decades now. A lot of people seem to believe that stress and stuttering are co-related. On the contrary, recent studies show that stress is more of a consequence rather than a cause of stuttering. If you take the first theory into consideration, then according to that, children would be the greatest victims of anxiety and stress. But it is seen that the level of stress increases proportionately with the increase in age.

Social anxiety in teenagers increases due to stuttering, when they come across individuals who can speak in a normal pace. This in turn can crush their self confidence and lead them to isolate themselves from social groups and people in general. Hence, it is important to deal with stuttering in the early ages or as and when it occurs. 

Sometimes stuttering can develop due to physical or mental trauma.  Most people with stuttering do not seek therapy for it because they might not think of it to be too severe. Little do they realise that a simple process of speech therapy can help them overcome this disability and rejuvenate their level of self-confidence.

It has also come to light, that people with relapse in stuttering post therapy has shown a three-fold increase in anxiety levels than normal. Hence we cannot ignore the strong relationship between stress and stuttering. So from the above evidence, it is safe to conclude that social anxiety or stress develops as a result of chronic stuttering.

How to deal with stress related to stuttering?

Seeking help is a great start to tackle your disability. If your stuttering is prominent enough to warrant therapy, you must seek professional help for the same. You must also learn to control your anxiety by dismissing any anxious thought or make sincere efforts in controlling physical anxiety.

You can also try to increase your social skills by participating in events, such as public speaking that can reduce your stress levels and make yourself more confident about yourself. One must also remember that a person is defined by what he does rather than what he says. So never let a minor disability come in the way of your self worth! If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Hello, take bc no. 25, 5 tabs twice daily and alpha liv, 2 tsp, once daily after dinner. Take plenty of water at frequent intervals.

Repeat those words on which you stammer, means words which are not clear and don't hesitate after some time if you practice well then your speech will become better.

What we have to do in CBT for psellismophobic person? Give me some stepwise idea about this.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For those who are prone to stuttering might feel embarrassment, some kind of distress as well as fear in most cases. Psellismophobia is full blown condition / phobia. Cbt is one of the best form of treatment therapy for the same. We believe that our brain can be re-wired / reprogrammed just like the our pc could be programmable. In cbt the basic principle is to looking into the thought processes that lead to negative belief and behavior pattern. We believe that these unhealthy thought processes are continue the chain reaction of thinking, acting and believing leading the behavior to continue. For example" what will happen if I stutter? I always stutter when there are people around. The cbt aims at changing these thought processes and replace them with more positive thought processes, which is called cognitive restructuring. In other words it is all about changing the way you think about something so that your perception will also change and that will help reduce the problem. The first step in cbt is to notice your recurrent thoughts which are negative. These are the thoughts that works as a trigger. And write down these thoughts on a piece of paper. You may divide the page in 3 vertical columns and write down negative thoughts in first column. Second state is rational thinking - here you refute the negative statement with rational thinking, which we all could do when not currently in a stressful situation. For example, if a negative thought is" what will happen if I slutter? rational thought could be as simple as" these people are friends" or" in a conversation what is important is my participation. And in the third column write down positive affirmation - these are positive thoughts and positive statements that you consciously repeat. For ex" I am a confident and effective speaker. This will help you improve your confidence. The bottom line behind this is that you repeat this affirmative statement often enough that they gradually become habitual thoughts. When you are naturally thinking these positive thoughts that itself will improve your performance. Along with cbt you can also use regular meditation session to help you manage your stress better and to induce calmness which helps in the process. Visualization is also very effective way to change behavior. It works as begin with the end in my. Daily you see yourself speaking confidently and maintaining your calm, confident state of being while in conversation. You may also include how you are successfully working with your fear or embarrassment by changing your thought and body posture. This will also help change your behavior. Hope this helps.

My stammering is different I speak without stammering with frns, with family members. But I stammer very badly in front of teachers in such a way that I cannot say my name. My parents say I was not a stammer earlier. But now I stammer in front of new people, I cannot communicate? Help.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Stammering is typically recognised 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 realise 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. Get an mri brain and eeg with a psychiatrist evaluation. In your case it looks like anxiety.
