Speech problems nasal

Common Questions and Answers about Speech problems nasal


Avatar n tn I have been having speech problems for almost 1 year now. It is hard to explain it, but I feel like I have to exert myself to speak and sometimes I stumble or slightly slur my words. It feels like my lips or tongue are not forming the words correctly. It is barely noticeable to other people. Sometimes I feel like I barely have enough breathe to complete a sentence. I started having these symptoms following a root canal and six weeks after having a baby.
Avatar f tn Do any of you have slurred speech or nasal sounding quality to your voice from MS?
Avatar f tn Other symptoms are muscle fasciculation, cramping or stiffness of affected muscles, muscle weakness affecting an arm or a leg, and/ or slurred and nasal speech. The parts to be affected first depend on which motor neurons are damaged first. Most of the affected get limb symptoms first. Do you have difficulty with tasks requiring manual coordination like shirt buttoning, writing etc. since symptoms appeared in the upper limb first for you?
Avatar f tn Trouble changing tone of voice. Nasal-sounding speech. There are two types of speech disorders that occur in MS, dysarthrias and dysphonias. Speech problems where the motor muscle components of speech are affected are dysarthrias (these typically affect volume control and articulation) while speech problems that affect voice quality are dysphonias.
1415711 tn?1286284954 About the same time my anxiety began I started noticing a problem with speech. Its like I have to try a little harder to get the words out or else they become jumbled together. No one claims to notice any change in my speech pattern. I made the mistake of googling slurred speech as a symptom and of course came across ALS. I refuse to go from panicing about throat cancer to ALS as I am fairly confident that my problem is stress/anxiety related.
Avatar f tn all the time! the twitching and reflux/ absent gag reflex are staples of chiari. urinary incontinence happens mostly when the brain has been compressed for so long and it has caused nerve damage or other issues like sm. it is also common in folks with tethered cord. so yes...in answer to your question, many of us experience these symptoms. your welcome!
Avatar n tn I would see an Otolaryngologist (you will need a fiberoptic nasal scope exam). Nasal regurgitation can be seen after surgery or could be from a muscle or nerve weakness. Does this happen when you drink liquids also? You will also likely need some blood work and possibly an MRI depending on the other results.
Avatar f tn I have had very bad sinus problems for years and had polyps removed 5 years ago. I have constant ,mucus and post nasal drip and recently thick green mucus for several weeks. I am attending ENT and will be going soon for a follow up as more polyps were found. I am also at speech therapy to learn to use my vocal chords and to breathe properly. I have been getting very light headed bunged up and tired, and today the green mucus had blood in it. I know it's probably all the nose blowing.

661788 tn?1269018186 I wanted to know how many people have problems sleeping at night. I have a problem laying down at night. I usally get up in the middle of the night and end up sleeping in my recliner. My head usally hurts, my sinuses are clogged and i just can not get comfortable. When i'm sleeping in my recliner i usally wake up with a headache. Does anyone else have the same or problems to at night?
Avatar n tn I have this problem with gagging, what seems to be caused by post nasal drip. When i wake up i tend to have a dry mucus build up in the post nasal area of my throat. The thing is when i gagg, trying to free the mucus from my throat, nothing seems to loosen up, which makes me have this feeling of vomiting. These symptoms are 10 fold when i am in any social situation, or have to tend to any type of stressfull situation.
Avatar n tn I also get the sensation that one feels after they have been punched in the nose, but not very often. Probably only about 3 times a year or so. I do have sinus problems and always have, but I have never really taken anything for it other than something over the counter during a cold. I have regular stuffiness and pretty much always have. I just have learned to deal with it. It would be nice to know were that smoke smell comes from. No one else smells it when I say I do.
Avatar n tn You should see a gastroenterologist, who would be able to reassure you and support a delay in proceeding with diagnostic studies. Something that is helpful for nasal symptoms and safe during pregnancy is to do nasal washes. A nasal wash helps remove mucus from the nose and sinuses. A prescription nasal steroid spray decreases nasal swelling and mucus production. To get the most out of a nasal steroid spray use it after doing a nasal wash.
Avatar m tn When she started taking this antibiotic she began to have slurred speech and seemed almost incoherent at times while still vomiting and being extremely dizzy. In the past month she has been to 3 doctors, has been put on three different antibiotics and a z pack, and has had her blood tested and had a CT scan of her sinuses. Finally yesterday we went to the ears, nose, and throat doctor and he sent her to the ER where they ran an MRI, everything came back fine.
Avatar f tn Thanks for input. Went to see a speech therapist the other day and confirmed that she is having difficulty swallowing. Learned some new techniques to help with this, but she will certainly need therapy.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The deviated nasal septum could be causing the nasal blockage and changes in the voice quality. Also, the cyst in the sinus could be due to sinusitis, this can cause a nasal congestion and consequent changes in voice quality. So, as you wait for the surgical correction of the deviated septum, get treated for the sinusitis.
Avatar m tn I'm really scared of what I find in the internet with all those brain tumor thing. What are your insights guys? I don't have any speech problems, memory problems but I do zone out from time to time, probably due to the stress of thinking too much about it.
Avatar n tn I made a new discovery this weekend after discussing my sinus problems and post nasal drip with a chemist. He told me that the main cause of post nasal drip is based on milk protein. This item is found in all milk products from vitamin D milk to skim milk. Yogurts and all powdered milk have that same protein. Two days ago I quit my intake of all milk products.
Avatar n tn But if it gets back to being almost every day, I can't imagine having to continue to deal with that for the rest of my life. As long as the bone is in place, I have no problems. No swallowing problems, no pain, nothing. I just never know when it's going to pop. I do a lot of public speaking and presentations. My greatest fear is that it will happen in front of an audience. The pain is so sudden and intense that I immediatley burst into tears.
Avatar f tn hi,my 2 and a half year old is currently awaiting an appointment with an ENT Specialist 9ear,nose and throat) as altho he can speak and understands everything his speech hisnt clear,and very nasal and i can only describe trhis as sounding deaf when he speaks.hes had an ear test which was clear a year ago.along with this he has extreme tantrums which last for 15-20 mins.i know this is to be expected at his age but the tantrum itself is very scary and his eyes are not focussed,he spits bubbles.
Avatar n tn -Difficulty breathing -Difficulty with speech -Trouble concentrating, thoughts seem clouded -Discomfort in throat -Trouble swallowing (every time I swallow I feel like I have to cough after) -Fatigue I was on minocycline for the last year and I realized that it could be the problem so I have stopped taking the pills. But I haven't had any improvement and I've been off them for a week now (and it would be out of my system by now).
Avatar n tn He runs pretty much year round for his high school cross country and track teams. Last spring during the outdoor track season, he began to have problems breathing during races and hard workouts. He was diagnosed as having exercise induced asthma and given Advair, Singular and Albuterol. They seemed to help and he got better over a 3-4 week period. He stopped taking the medicines at that point when the season ended.
Avatar m tn If your doctor is correct, and he usually is, the post-nasal drip may be causing your throat problems. What often is the case, is that there's an infection in your sinuses, be it a bacteria, fungus, or virus, and the toxins caused by your white blood cells attacking it drains into your throat and irritates it. It can go on indefinitely, without causing congestion.
Avatar n tn Hi Everyone. This is my first post. I started having problems about 5 years ago. It was occasional problems such as mild sinus pain/pressure and headache with mild eye strain. Each year it has gotten worse. Over the course of the past 5 years I have seen multiple doctors across different specialites: Ears, Nose & Throat, Neurologist, Allergist, and my Intern. I have had MRI's and CT scans. This year has been the worst so far. I have already gotten 2 sinus infections.
Avatar n tn Without even realizing it, our body's react in strange ways including a hungover feeling, pins and needles, stomach problems, speech problems, seeing problems and a whole bunch more. Try to get exercise and see if that helps, it should. Also, drink lots of water and avoid alcohol!
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. If your uvula is long, it could cause problems with speech or sometimes, problems with breathing when it is mouth breathing. So for this, if any nasal blocks try to keep them patent with OTC nasal decongestants. If the symptoms are troublesome consult your doctor for surgical therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn However, the good news is that the problems persist only during the relapses or when the person is extremely tired. Speech problems may include slurring, long pauses between words, nasal speech, tremor in voice etc. You could ask the hospital to send across a speech therapist. This will help improve her speech even while the inflammation is there. Once the relapse is under control, speech therapy will speed up the speech recovery.
Avatar m tn Dear raj887, Welcome back. Hypernasality or excessive nasal speech resonance is the result of velopharyngeal insufficiency with emission of too much air through the nose. Velopharyngeal insufficiency can happen because of cleft palate, damage to the posterior tonsillar pillar, resection of the uvula or post adenoidectomy. In most cases, the more the space created in the post nasal area (the space where the adenoids are present) the more is the hypernasality.
