Hi doc I am 19/male. I have a problem with voice. Whenever I speak to someone over the phone or in person, people always say" can you please repeat it" I wanna know exercise/ yoga to make my voice louder and clearer.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
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.

I have stammering problem from 15-20 years. I took advice from many doctors. Some told me that it will be decrease when my age is increasing, but I notice that stammering is also increasing with my age. I did speech therapy also, but can't get any positive response. Some doctors said it is mentally problem. Please tell me Is there any solution for my speech problem?

Normal stammering happens to all. But when it's out of control we call it stuttering. In this case coping mechanisms lag in us. Speech therapy definitely helps. Yeah its psychogenic, you need to understand it better. Speech therapy must help.

Dear, 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.

My son is 3.2 years old, he has lisping in his words, is it terminate itself as he grows or something has to be done from our side I e to look after the doctor in the same, please advice.

Lisping could be due to physiological and psychological reasons. Among the physiological factors are the functioning of the tongue, the vibration of the vocal cords, the cleft of the pallet etc. You need to first identify wether it is a developmental issue by consuling a speech language therapist (slp. Once that is ruled out then you need to address the psychological issues.

I have severe sore throat, cough and cold. There's hoarseness of voice since 4 days. How to get relief from this.
Voice rest is need be cautious with medications. Many can directly or indirectly affect your voice. Avoid habitual and frequent throat clearing and excessive coughing. Avoid speaking in noisy environments and open spaces such as playgrounds. Avoid intake of spicy, oily and fast food. Avoid caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea and colas. Do not smoke & avoid alcohol intake. Do not sing or mimic natural sounds or animal cries to train your voice. Consult a speech-language pathologist.

Stammering is a learned behavior, ask him to be confident and speak slow. Speech therapy will be of greater help. Ask him to consult a speech therapist.

When I write, I sound intelligent, and can get my Point across effectively. However, every time I Open my mouth to speak, I sound like a total Idiot. Everything always comes out wrong; Nothing ever comes out right. I can never get Across what I am trying to convey. People never" get the point" of what I am saying; it's very Frustrating. I have a lot of intelligent thoughts And good ideas, but if I try to express them Verbally, it always sounds really garbled and Disjointed. I am eloquent when I write, but When I talk, I stammer and fumble and look like a Fool. What is the reason for this?

Dear sir expression of thoughts can be either emotional or conceptual among the conceptual expression of thoughts, there are two variants 1. Through writing 2. Through speaking so, there are three neural circuits in brain that express that you feel and the three neural circuits are in various stages of development in various individuals so some are good speakers but poor writers some are good writers but poor speakers some are good writers as well as good speakers some are neither:) (same way, some people would like to read a mail to know the response. Some prefer a phone call. Why? it is because just like how you have various pathways for expression of thought, there are various input pathways too. Those whose neural circuits for symbols is stronger prefer a sms or mail. Those whose neural circuits for sounds is stronger prefer a phone call) now coming back to your problem your neural circuits that deals with speaking (from brocas area) is" relatively weaker" than your intellect and the neural circuits that deals with writing which are very very strong. So you are finding it difficult to talk but, please wait your speech pathway is not really weak. It appears to be relatively weaker because your thinking and writing circuits are extremely strong. In other words, you think faster, your hands are able to cope up with that speed, but your mouth is not yet coping up, and hence you stammer. The good news: a person with good intellect and good writing skills (as evidenced from your question) can easily develop his speech too. All it needs is self confidence [which I have given here ;) ] and practice [which you have to do] start practising today. Sorry, now itself:):):) best wishes for a successful career.

I do stammer nd my voice is not clear like others nd sometimes I found difficulty with some particular words .I hv inferiority. Complex of this prblm but I talk very confidently to everyone .does this prblm has permanent solution? Or I will suffer from this throughout my life.

MD - Psychiatry

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. It can be dramatically improved, if it s due to anxiety. All the best.

Hi lybrate-user, you are suffering from stamerring and wanted to overcome this problem. Firstly, you have done a good job for coming forward to tell your problem. Stammering is not a big problem unless otherwise no physiological cause is present. It is only 6 months old problem definitely, we can solve it, medication is not necessary. But can you tell, how you feel when you take medicine for this problem. I want you to consult speech specialist or ENT specialist and let me know the result or status of your problem and then we could get clear idea of what exactly and then, start the treatment for you. Do not worry, there are many ways to overcome this problem. Take care.
