basically when i speak i sound about 90 years old as my voice is very shaky , but to me, in my head it doesnt. i have just moved and this is turning into a problem because everyone seems to think ive had a breakdown or just of a nervous disposition, i am 43 and single and people struggle to understand me, those who dont know me, am getting really down about this and feel like shouting its not me!
i just wondered if its medical, it seems to have been going on for years
It sounds likeyou may be suffering from something called essential tremor. According to one website I visited:
Essential tremor (ET) is a nerve disorder characterized by uncontrollable shaking, or "tremors," in different parts and on different sides of the body. Areas affected often include the hands, arms, head, LARYNX (VOICE BOX), tongue, and chin. Rarely, the lower body is affected.
You didn't mention your age. This disorder does not jus affect older adults.
While ET can occur at any age, it most often strikes for the first time during adolescence or in middle age (between ages 40 and 50).
