    From Robert Hello I m 18 years old and go to college in Denver I have been stuttering since I was about three years old and have learned numerous strategies from a couple of speech therapists My number one strategy over the years has been slowing down my rate of speech taking deep breaths and trying to stay relaxed This semester I am taking my first speech communication class ever Over the past I have gotten out of class oral reports and I feel that I am in dire straights Are there any new strategies that you would recommend for me My ex girlfriend said that she had heard some crazy thing about piercing your tongue to stop speech disfluence Is this true I would appreciate any help you could give me as soon as possible Robert Dear Robert Do NOT pierce your tongue Not only will it not help your stuttering but it will make your speech difficult to understand BAD IDEA Many stutterers find that giving reports and other instances where they stand before a group are actually easier than holding face to face conversations In a sense you are playing a role kind of like a reporter

    have hearing loss with the flu Also could you tell me if it is possible that losing your hearing could make you hear certain noises very loudly but when people are talking to you or you are watching television you cannot hear it it is muffled Is it possible that this loss of hearing could also bring on hallucinations of any kind I really need some help with this matter If you could refer me where to search on the web or otherwise I would greatly appreciate the assistance I have already done a search on the web and I came up empty handed I have a relative who is sick and I need to know what to do Thank you for any help you can give WOW What a list of questions First yes it is possible to have a hearing loss from the flu Sometimes the congestion associated with the flu can create a temporary hearing loss just from the blockage caused by the fluid build up similar to the discharge from the nose It is also possible that the virus which causes the flu can itself affect the nerves of hearing causing some degree of permanent hearing loss Your best bet is to have your relative examined by a good otologist ear specialist Such a physician can prescribe appropriate medications if that is appropriate Nerves of hearing when damaged can give hearing loss for volume only but they can also distort sound so that no matter how loud speech still is not clear An evaluation by an audiologist will check both problems of loudness and clarity Nerves when damaged may also fire spontaneously resulting in auditory hallucinations called Tinnitus These sounds within the head may be mistaken for the ringing of the phone or other higher pitched
