Hi Limaheraty,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
Yes exactly, you need to consult your phonosurgeon and also a clinical psychologist. You do not seem to have any medical problem, it is just a matter of counselling and some speech therapy which is required.

Take care

Regards

Dr. Naveen Kumar

Well, I want to ask this to a Phoniatrics specialist, because I ve been told by an ENT doctor I ve visited to do so. Anyways, I m 18 turning 19 in a few months, and I ve a really high-pitched voice that sounds like a 13-year-old girl, and I feel like my vocal cords are so tightened even after sleeping for more than 8 hours. So, I know this is like a feature of my voice. It s really making me uncomfortable, like I can t be myself because of it. And some people I know even made a comment on it, so you can just imagine how it is! So, here s my question: is there a cure for that? And I don t mean just surgeries. I mean is there a medicine I can take for that? I don t want to do the voice-training thing, because I ve tried for some time, but I want fast results. (And my blood tests show that I ve normal hormone levels. I know that because my parents are doctors). Thanks for reading my message :) I really appreciate this.

My son had an expressive language delay and was treated at 14 months. Now at age 10 I am noticing that socially he is struggling. He speaks about things that he feels confident about and I feel it is alienating him socially. If I were to have him evaluated again (he received speech, physical and currently is receiving Occupational therapy would speech therapy address these issues? We are correcting and redirecting and modeling for him but I am unsure if that is enough. Please advise.
