Common Questions and Answers about Speech disorder mumble

speech

Is there a name for where a person involuntarily repeats thoughts out loud in speech, much like echolalia where a person would involuntarily repeat speech or sounds that they heard?
Hello all! I was diagnosed with depression/anxiety disorder about 8 years ago and have been on several meds since. Starting with Paxil, Cymbalta, and now Wellbutruin. I have used Wellbutrin the longest, and have for probably 4-5 years. Anyway, I don't know if this is depression related or not but here goes. For years now, I have been unable to think clearly and focus on tasks. Even what would seem to be the easiest of questions are hard for me to answer or remember at times.
I'm 20 years old. As time has gone on, my speech has gradually worsened. People tell me I mumble a lot and it's hard to understand me. I also have gotten worse at converting my thoughts into verbal form. Because of this, I'm apprehensive and very bad at making conversation because I will always end up sounding like an idiot. Therefore, I keep my sentences short and simple and don't say much.
The term autism can sometimes be used as a synonym for Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a category of conditions that includes Autistic Disorder and sevral other conditions (Rett's Disorder, Asperger's Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, e.g.). It is possible that your son displays a condition along the Pervasive Developmental Disorder spectrum, though on the basis of his language functioning alone it would not be possible to conclude that he is actually autistic.
I am 24 years old, and have recently recognized that I have a speech disorder. Throughout my life, I had trouble communicating, but I had never noticed exactly where exactly I had been making mistakes and what my limitations were. While I was born in the U.S., English was my second language, and I had always assumed that I had sort of an accent.
I also slur my speech like mumble. A couple of doctors have thought I was having TIA's but they all find the werid because I am so young. I had a CT Scan two weeks ago which I asume was fine. My doctor is trying to get me an MRI and ultrasound of my neck but we are having problems with my insurance, which is ridcoulous considering I have been having these symptoms for about four weeks now.
The thing that really makes me think it may be autism is the echolaic speech and I wondered if this was unique to autism or if kids with speech delays go through this speech stage before progressing onto more normal speech patterns. None of his therapists have ever mentioned autism before, infact his OT said she is sure he isn't and although some of his behaviours are similar that could be because the behaviours associated with the hydro and SID can be similar to autism behaviours.
(please god someone explain that one) No history of diabetes. Have seen many docs about it but still have it. 9. Speech problems. Forget syllables, slur, rush words, mumble. Seems slowly progressive. Strong history of familial tremor, just to add a dash of spice. Main doc getting me an appointment with movement specialist, but I am curious and of course *impatient*. Will likely be months before I see someone. Thx!
arthritis, degenerative disc disease, anxiety, factor 5 liden (genetic clotting disorder) and some audo immune disorder (antphiosphilipids) not sure of the spelling. Any advice or suggestions is greatly appreciated.
I get so scared I’m going to become schizophrenic I cry, I test reality like “did I really hear that sound or am I hallucinating” Because a few months ago I thought I heard my friend mumble something when I almost immediately realised she didn’t. I also thought I saw a spider out the corner of my eye when it turned out to be my door handle I was almost positive I was loosing my mind at that stage. I know I’m not the same person I used to be.
They get muddled up and make mistakes. Strong history of familial tremor. Is this tremor? Speech problems. *Minor* stutter appeared in teens, stayed the same until recently. Must now slow speech down in order to not make these mistakes: slur, mix end of one word into beginning of next, miss syllables, mumble. Stiff chin and and jaw muscles especially on exposure to cold. Muscle cramping, especially bad in feet and on left side.
A speech therapist works with her and she can read, write some (copies words) and has progressed with food (a feeding tube to puree foods to soft - ground foods). The speech therapist has positive prognosis for speech improvements over the next year. I'm wondering how paralysis recovery works? She has physio and Occupational therapy working her muscles but do people with paralysis get some motor function back and if so what type of time frame (3,6,12, months?
They finally saw a doctor who diagnosed a brain disorder - i think a portion of the brain was swollen. The child had surgery and almost immediately began sleeping normally at night. I'm not sure if back pain was involved with this child. Now, this is a simple t.v. story and I would not pretend to know a thing about your situation. But I mention it only as one possibility, something to question and look into.
In looking for whats the cause, I've seen a lot of things, but I don't think I have a sleep disorder, because I sleep great. I've never taken drugs, prescription or non. One message board mentioned that its merely a nutritional deficiency thing, so I'm going to try some multi vitamins. That doesn't seem like it could be it, but i'll try about anything. And if that doesn't work, I'm going to have my head examined.
I have a sleep disorder but not a good diagnosis. I have extreme daytime sleepiness - just irresistable - fall asleep talking on phone, at computer, inopportune times. Provigil helps me stay technically awake, but I don't feel rested. My oxygen levels drop into the 80s and stay there for a good part of the night, but oxygen supplementation doesn't help it. Apparently I am not getting some kind of signal to breath.
Yrs. ago, I also went through this terrible problem & ETD is just the worst thing to dx/treat/fix. My case was unilateral w/ ear but bilateral w/ nasal prssr-hdprssr. I also went through several ENT's/Neurotologists scans & tests. Cause can be 1 or multi-problems. It's a rule out game. Hm-journal, like a sm- calendar bk is great since it's dated & can go back to see date of matching events/symptoms. Use abreviations. The ET's are in the back of the throat & connect to middle-ear.
I kept rubbing her back (watching a movie on her TV by the bed). Every once in a while she would mumble something (like anyone might do when they are dreaming). Several times I tried to wake her to take a sip of water or ask her if she was in pain. At first she would open her eyes, but it was like she didn't see anything, you know? I think at first she even tried to sip water from the straw, but immediately fell back to sleep.
