Voice pitch changing: Your question is hard to answer without hearing the sound of your voice. Perhaps this is worth speaking to a doctor in person to get advice? Surgery is an option if you desire a higher pitched voice: http://voicedoctor.Net/surgery/pitch-altering-surgeries. ...Read more

What happens with breathing with sleep? Are rhythmic popping sounds (like 1-2 raindrops) normal in 92 yo? What about sighs and labored breaths/gasps?

What happens with breathing with sleep? Are rhythmic popping sounds (like 1-2 raindrops) normal in 92 yo? What about sighs and labored breaths/gasps?

92 yo sleep issues.: My guess is that 'raindrops' maybe from postnatal drip or oropharyngeal secretions. The gaspin and sighs are likely due to sleep apnea, from a central and obstructive cause. This is all that i can say without more info on this 92 yo! might have silent aspiration as well. ...Read more

Why don't you start with a pediatrician who has good reputation (ask around you friends). If the pediatrician finds something abnormal, he or she will most likely refer your son to a child psychologist. ...Read more

Lock up and can't speak when trying to read aloud or say certain phrases. This is ruining my life. Help me, ?

It sounds like: You may have one social anxiety. Medicines ike sertraline 25 mg can help, atenolol 25 mg is another. You can get caught in a cumulative feedback loop where it becomes more difficult.

Yes: Thoughts get louder the longer we focus on them. If the thoughts surround the things we obsess about then anxiety makes the volume increase. Learn to distract yourself and use positive self talk to compete with the thoughts. Psychopharmacology and Talk therapy, specifically coginitive behavioral therapy also helps.
