Vocal Cords And MS

Vocal Cords And MS

I just read where tremor in the voice can be a problem for people with MS. I knew that I had changes in my vocal cords and the way I sound sometimes. Other people definitely noticed.

I thought that it could be the MS but wasn't sure because it comes and goes and I've ruled out everything else.

Anyone else?

Yup! Can't sing anymore. My favorist thing to do in the world except riding my horse. Too old to ride anymore and hate not being able to sing. I also have trouble swallowing. Have for a while. I don't get hoarse, but can somethings think what I want to say and the words do not come out.

I believe there's something to that as I start sluring my words about a paragraph into the conversation....I also use to sing in a worship band (my voice was supposedly great) & now just keeping up with a song is a workout!

Yes just prior to being diagnosed I started to losing my singing voice and have since lost most of it and have spoken to others that have had the same thing.

I always have speaking issues..... stuttering, mumbling, rambling, forgetting words (that happens a lot), I sometimes have twitching even in my mouth. Like when my teeth decide to clamp down on my tongue, unexpectedly, or when it gets the Inside of my cheeks, or just slams down and makes a snapping noise, that actually hurts. Any way you look at it it's not very pretty or comfortable.
