| | Help! I'm having trouble speaking
Ever since the end of December, I've been having trouble speaking properly. I've never had this problem before in my life, but it has not went away since it developed. My problem is hard to describe, but I'll try my best. When I try to talk to someone, it's like my mouth sort of locks up and I can't project right, and if I try to speak normally my lip can quiver and it will look really weird. It's almost like a tight feeling in my mouth. Sometimes this doesn't happen (when I manage to forget about it somehow) but usually it does. I have no problem with language itself, it's just getting the words to come out of my mouth. I'm not sure if anyone notices my problem, but it has been ruining my life the last few months and I've been afraid to talk. Does anyone know what this is? I feel helpless that I can't do something as simple as talking. Also, this is sometimes coupled with excessive swallowing but not always. Is there anything I can do to stop this???
