Speech Disorders/Thick Tongue, Uncontrolled Speech


Mike wrote at 2008-07-11 16:13:58
Rather than, asking questions, I would like to ask the fellow who asked questions about his tongue being thick and speeches being unnatural. Did you get any cure? Did it help? If yes, can you tell me what it is? I am going through exactly what you are going through. Thank you

i saw ur problem. there are few things u can do. its only temperoary. you can wear a swiming nose clip. trust me it helps. or u can wear a tight swim cap whenever possible. or tie tight around ur cranium like a head band. some nikken products also helps. u can wear magnetic nikken headband. either around ur head or neck. it helps. u can purchase from basically either ur cranium going loose or u need circulation to ur head (more blood). most of all pray to God.

My name is Eric, and I have the same conditional characteristics that you described. I know how frustrating it can be to always get corrected, and not being able to complete several sentences without stuttering, biting your tongue, or verbal mistakes. You, like me, want to be the best, but your mouth and tongue is rebellious.  

When my condition first started, I felt a tingling in the back of my throat.  I suffered from anxiety attacks after being overwhelmed at my job. I contributed my current condition to eating large bags Cheetos over weeks 5-6 years ago or longer in the attempt to save money, and to no help at my job as the work and calls were piling up. The anxiety attacks came to a high points. I had bouts of acid reflux. I went to several doctor’s offices and ER many times looking for help for my issues. They could not find anything wrong. I also could not explain it because then I did not know what it was affecting me. I noticed my hearing and voice were out of sync. For example, when I answered calls at my job, I could hear my voice delayed by few seconds and it overshadowed the person I was speaking to. It was hard to ignore.  I also noticed the lack of firm control of my mouth motor skills. But now some of the condition has clear up, I no longer have the out of syncness that was occurring to me. My tongue still is over my teeth, but I can rest it in my mouth. I have this slight synthesize sound. It is a wield sound. I thinkg that I know what the sound is now. It is similar to the sound that paper makes when you blow on its end, but in this case it may be my tongue sticking up over my teeth as air pushes against it.

I realized that if the issue did not affect the majority of the people, it was no concern for medical community to solve. I lot of people take speaking for granted

I can not evaluate a child or person over the computer. I can provide generalities based on my extensive knowledge and expertise in second language acquisition and speech pathology.


Deborah Jill Chitester received her Masters of Science in Speech-Language Pathology from Adelphi University in New York and was granted her Certificate of Clinical Competence (C.C.C) by the American Speech and Hearing Association (ASHA). She has 12 years experience working with all age levels both mono-lingual and Spanish speaking, having received special certification by the State of New York as a Bilingual (English/Spanish) Speech-Language Pathologist. Deborah has worked with all age levels and all disabilities. She began her practice in New York, where she worked with both private patients as well as with the major school systems and corporations. She treats both monolingual and Spanish speaking clients of all ages and disabilities and utilizes some of the latest computer based treatment especially designed to promote optimal language development. Due to the use of her “linguistic features” approach, her client mix is increasingly more culturally linguistically diverse encompassing those representing almost all backgrounds presently comprising Asians, Arabs, Pakistani , etc. Deborah is an advocate of “highest quality service provider” having given many speaking engagements at parent/special interest support groups to inform and educate parents regarding appropriate educational practices for second language learners. One presentation also dealt with the facilitation of literacy instruction particularly reading in the English Language Learner population. She provides professional development in this area both locally and nationally. Lastly, She provides specialized language services for internationally adopted children and provides consultative services for parents concerning the importance of distinguishing second language aspects from true speech and language disorders.
