Describing his ailment, Mr Shah was quoted by the Pinkvilla as saying, “Onomatomania is an ailment in which you keep repeating a word or a phrase, a sentence or a verse or a speech for no reason at all. Except that you like to hear it. I do it all the time so I am never quite at rest. Even when I am sleeping, I am going over some passage I love”

What is Onomatomania?

Onlymyhealth quoted Dr. Neha Anand, Counseling Psychologist at Bodhitri India Center, as saying, “Onomatomania is a mental health problem in which a person repeatedly repeats a statement, phrase, or word for no apparent reason. You will recall a certain word if you have onomatomania. This illness is regarded as an integral element of a person’s personality.If you are so much into arts or reading and writing, your chances of developing this condition are higher.”

Despite the fact that onomatomania is a mental condition, specialists say there is no specific cure or prevention for it. It is probable that you will have to live with this sickness as long as it does not deteriorate your mental health. If a person is worried about the illness, doctors can help by prescribing CBT therapy.

If the symptoms are severe, anxiety or depression medication may be prescribed. Onomatomania does not have a particular medication or treatment, however as the symptoms intensify, CBT therapy is used. You will not have any problems with this disease as long as it does not interfere with a person’s daily routine.

According to several cognitive behaviour studies, the disorder has even been connected to obsessive compulsive disorder, or OCD.  Onomatomania is not a cause for worry on its own. If it’s linked to things like OCD, anxiety, or other issues, then only it’s something to be concerned about.

Naseeruddin Shah is one of Bollywood’s most capable performers, starring in a number of outstanding films. With her on-screen abilities and even his off-screen persona, the actor has won hearts. 

Naseeruddin Shah was most recently featured in Shakun Batra’s directorial Gehraiyaan, which starred Deepika Padukone, Ananya Panday, and Siddhant Chaturvedi. Though, the film could not manage to grab the intended success but Mr Shah’s performance, on the other hand, was well received. The legendary actor will next be seen in Arjun Kapoor’s dark comedy ‘Kuttey’, alongwith Tabu, Radhika Madan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Kumud Mishra, and others.
