Voice Changing Issues.

Voice Changing Issues.

For the pass week or so, I've noticed from time to time my voice fades, the strength of it seems to dimish which causes my voice to go in and out. My voice appears lower and weak at times. When this occurs it feels as if my throat gets a cramp in it, which makes it hard for me to speak. This is the best way I can explain it.

Can anyone relate to this? If it continues, I will contact my neurologist.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Mir,

How are you my friend , its been a long time since we spoke, but havent been on here lately either. Yes i do too have problems speeking loudly too, but my voice gets raspy and gets to be a wisper. Ugh very frustrated when people cant here me. I used a speech therapist who gave some excercises to do which really helped. Unfortunately i dont use it as much as i should lol good luck

Dido, I used to sing soprano. Now, I sing alto, but only for a few words. My throat feels like I am being strangled. The way this disease works, voice lessons might not work. πŸ˜’. An act of God, or, really tight underwear, would bring my voice back. πŸ™ƒ. Hang in there. Soon there will be other things to take your attention. Happy Thanksgiving πŸ¦ƒπŸ½.

I have had a sore throat, my voice crackling, and swallowing water, causing me to choke. Also, my voice is soft. I thought it was my inhalers. Now I'm thinking it might be from my MS. I have always known that MS can cause issues with every part of our bodies. However, I keep learning new things here! Thank you for sharing!

I just went to ent for this on Tuesday. He said it was acid based in my case and prescribed over c malox. He did say he would notify my neurologist as well since this occurs with MS patients.🀞Please not another!!

I can't remember something 5 seconds later. It does make you feel stupid around others.
