Is there anything called compulsive talking disorder? Talking continuously

Hi, my partner never stops talking - day and night, anything and everything all the time! When the TV is on, when I am busy. It is wearing me out. I am by nature a quiet person but seldom get anytime to myself. He resents it if I go off on my own anywhere. Today I decided to look up and see if there was such a thing as compulsive talking disorder and find that there is. What can I do? How can I go about get him to see someone about it. I really am worn out. Any suggestions?

Psychiatrist Dr. Srikanth Reddy's  Response
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
Unfortunately there is nothing called compulsive talking disorder formally. It could be a type of personality type that he is having. If you are having problem with his behaviour, you should talk to him direclt about what is causing problem and also offer to meet a psychiatrist with him to rectify any relationship problems. In that case he wont feel offended.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
