Beware of vocal tics in children who stutter
Ma Bingxiang, deputy director and chief physician of the Pediatric Hospital of the First Affiliated Hospital of Henan College of Traditional Chinese Medicine, said that when it comes to tics, many parents will immediately think of replacement blinks, squeezing eyebrows, sniffing, pouting or even shrugging, shaking their heads, and trembling limbs.
However, the tics mentioned in terms of performance symptoms mainly include “motor tics” and “vocal tics”. Parents understand that they are mostly motor tics, but vocal tics are often ignored by parents.
The vocal tics are mainly caused by the sudden contraction of a group of muscles or a muscle group when the twitches of the human articulator muscles, thoracic dilatation muscles, abdominal muscles, and oropharyngeal muscles cause abnormalities due to slenderness.
Most of these children show throat clearing, pauses in speech, stuttering, stuttering, dry cough, and murmurs such as grunts found in their throats.
Because vocal tics are mostly larynx symptoms, they are often misdiagnosed as allergic cough, chronic pharyngitis, and other symptoms in the clinic.
In addition, vocal tics is easier to distinguish from simple stuttering.
Generally speaking, the symptoms of simple stuttering are relatively stable, while vocal tics are mild to severe, and some are accompanied by limb symptoms such as blinking and pouting.
Director Ma Bingxiang said that the natural relief of vocal tics in children is very small, and because children will often be laughed at by their classmates, ridiculed, etc., it is easy to make children withdrawn, inferiority, etc., and they will develop inattention in the long run.Concentration, decline in performance and even hostility to others, retaliation, so parents should take their children to the hospital for treatment as soon as possible.
In terms of treatment, western medicines often add dopamine blockers such as fluorophenol alcohol and telapride, but it will produce many alternatives, mainly manifested as vertebral body external symptoms such as drowsiness, irritability, dizziness, and even strong neck implantation., Eye movements are not working, etc., so it is best to replace traditional Chinese medicine or cooperate with traditional Chinese medicine for treatment. Chinese patent medicines can choose Jingling oral solution, Longdan Xiegan Wan, Guipi Wan, etc. under the guidance of a doctor.
The last candidate is that because children in preschool and school age are very strong in imitating ability, if some children imitate others “stuttering”, and they are also affected to some extent, parents should never refuse to blame or overcorrect.So as not to cause too much psychological burden and really induce stuttering.
