  1. Pressure of speech

    Pressure of speech is a tendency to speak rapidly and frenziedly, as if motivated by an urgency not apparent to the listener. The speech produced, sometimes called pressured speech, is difficult to interrupt and may be too fast or too tangential for the listener to understand; it is an example of cluttered speech. It can be unrelenting, loud and without pauses. It is a hallmark of mania and is often seen during manic periods in patients with bipolar disorder. The pace of the speech indicates an underlying thought disorder known as “flight of ideas” where the information going through the person’s head is so fast that it is difficult to follow their train of thought. People with schizophrenia, as well as anyone experiencing extreme anxiety, may also exhibit pressure of speech. Pressure of speech usually refers to the improperly verbalized speech which is a feature of hypomanic and manic illness. Psychostimulants such as cocaine, amphetamines, etc. may cause "pressured speech" in individuals with pre-existing psychopathology and produce hypomanic or manic symptoms in general. Pressure of speech has commonly been observed in people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
