Throat problems hoarseness

Common Questions and Answers about Throat problems hoarseness


I have had hoarseness for almost a year. I had RAI treatment December 08, had hot nodules. ENT checked vocal cords they turned out fine and no scar tissue. Hurts when I talk, left side constantly in pain radiating from bottom of throat to left ear. All docs I have been to say everything is coming back normal. However, the ENT sent me to speech therapy. Just finished a 12 week round of vitalstem treatment, which is included with the speech.
After that, I coughed alot and had alot of phlegm stick in my throat! I have very bad hoarseness! It wasn't easy to clear my throat so I had to drink water to clear my throat! I went to ENT doctor to check it out. He said my vocal cord (throat) is little swollen because it's from the exposure of acid and I have alot of phlegm in my throat! He also said that I have acid reflux. Also it is because I used to overeat heavy meals (dinner) often.
I am glad that you are on an antibiotic , as allergens & irritants can set the perfect stage for an infection that is bacterial to take hold. You said that you have had a horrible chest infection & are constantly clearing your throat? When an infection sets into your sinuses , the postnasal drip from that can make a person feel like there is thick mucus sort of "stuck' in the throat area.
My saliva is very frothy and i clear my throat of it all day. But i have sinus problems. I do get pain and burny sensations in my throat, but its a process that i know gets better with time. Hope this helps.
Can thyroid nodules cause hoarseness? I have had voice problems for several years and was diagnosed with MTD. Recent voice therapy has been intermittently helpful. Several months ago I noticed a swelling in the right side of my throat and a subsequent ultrasound found two thyroid nodules - 1.9 cm x 1.5 cm in the isthmus and 1.6 cm x 1.8 cm in the right lobe with ill-defined borders. A FNA is planned but I am wondering if the nodules could be what has been causing the hoarseness.
I have suffered from heart problems for a lot of years. One of the problems is my Atrial Fibrilation and more recently advanced heart failure. In a bid to control my AF, which was severe enough for my heartbeat to stop for up to nine seconds, but still stay conscious, I was fitted with an ICD. That was just over a year ago. (July 2014). In June this year, 2015, I started with my difficulty speaking, and gave me a sore throat, but that has gone.
Mild scarring could be related to a past chest infection or something in childhood. It is unusual that you had a HRCT without pulmonary function test to establish if there was a restrictive pattern present. Normally an abnormal PFT leads to a HRCT. Did your doctor say you had Pulmonary Fibrosis? this is an unusual diagnosis without a lung biopsy. You should post on the cheshire med site, or the huff-n-puff site http://www.huff-n-puff.
Hi, I have some reflux problems and swallowing /throat problems that my doctor said could be from long term untreated reflux. Could this make it difficult to sing, ie, making my throat feel irritated while singing? This is a problem because I am a musician and am expected to sing sometimes.
He checked my pulse and felt pvc's and my tongue for stress and malnutrition and some herbs to try. This lump in the throat and hoarseness is just another I hope to control. Share your experience.........
Hi, I have had a mild hoarseness for 4 months. I have reluctantly made appt. with ENT. Can someone please tell me what to expect in the evaluation? Thanks!
I'm only 17 and for the past year or so, worsening over time, i've noticed that my throat gets clogged with something, and I'll caugh and caugh and try to clear my throat, but it doesn't's especially worse after I eat. Also, around the same time I begun to notice that, i've also been gagging uncontrollably after I eat. Not throwing up, just gagging. I've never had an eating disorder or anything like that..and also, it's starting to affect my vocal cords as well..
Have you had your thyroid ultrasound scanned, because you can have nodules on the thyroid, which is in the throat, and these can cause hoarseness, and like a raspy feeling in the throat and voice. I would have a thyroid blood test, and ultrasound of the thyroid, as this is were your problem might lie. I had a nodule on my thyroid, and it caused me hoarseness in the voice.
The concern is for my mom, actually. She has undiagnosed symptoms after 2 months of testing. It\'s frustrating to not know what is causing her pain. She has chest pain that seems to be linked to a hoarseness in her voice. She has had many tests, all of which have come up with \"normal\" or \"good\" results. Tests include CT scan, chest x-ray, EKG, stress test, endoscopy, colonoscopy, larenoscopy, lots of bloodwork including thyroid tests, etc.
One more thing I need to add is because of bad cough I had I still cough if I laugh alot. This means my throat is weak still. I dont have any other health problems. I eat well. Sleep well. I dont feel much tired. Not any fatigue. My stool is ok. I work every day no problems at all. But I am just having uncomfortable issues going on around my neck , in throat etc. Please advice.
You might be on the right track with having GERD, if you are having feeling of the acid burning as well. GERD can make the throat look red. GERD can give sore throat (personal experience). I think dry air with forced heating can too in the winter. But I don't think GERD normally affects the voice? And w/the lump feeling and redness, I'd recommend getting a second doctor opinion from another ear, nose, and throat specialist on this. You wouldn't want to miss if it were cancer or something.
about 6 years ago, I had mono for the second time, and where the first time I had it the most obvious symptom was the WORST sore throat I'd ever had, this time the symptoms were totally different - difficulty breathing, feeling like my throat was closing, and extreme fatigue. It has occurred to me that in the past year, whenever I'm under stress I have the very same throat issue - feels like it is closing, to the point that my voice changes, and it comes on very quickly.
For about a fortnight I was up about 5 times a night to sip water as my throat felt so dry and sore. That has not been such a major problem since. Ever since, for the last 4 years, I have suffered with this tightness and soreness which varies but extends up my throat and across shoulder blades.
For over a month, I've had problems with my throat and tongue. At first, my tonge was twitching on the left side. That has finally diminished and is nearly gone, but has been replaced by a sensation that there is something on my tongue. It feels coated, sticky and dry. Even the back of my tongue in my throat is starting to feel this way. It almost feels like it could even be swollen a bit, and actually even the roof of my mouth feels a bit rough.
I noted bad fatigue, frequent hoarseness and swallowing problem (allergy pills sit in my throat after taking them with multi glasses of water, only food pushes them far enough so they go down). 2nd appt endo: US guided FNA on 4/30. On 5/7, left neck lymph nodes (same side-nodule) swelled. Got to see endo PA 5/8, fluid behind ears and est. sinus infection, so Rx'd azithromycin + benign!.
They happen infrequently. I also get acid reflux, anxiety, have a post nasal drip, sore throat, voice hoarseness and wake up with stuff in my chest. I having coughing episodes in the morning and get a bad gag reflux where my throat closes, but the morning episodes I'm not too concerned about. It's the ones I get when I'm not coughing and my throat just closes up suddenly with no warning. It always comes good, but the episodes are terrifying as I am convinced I am going to die during them.
It can cause a myriad of symptoms, including throat pain, hoarseness, throat clearing, etc. You could google this term and find out if your symptoms are even close. Just an idea...
The acid may reach the throat, leading to reflux laryngitis and hoarseness, chronic mostly one-sided sore throat and chronic dry cough. The refluxed acid may enter the windpipe specially when sleeping at night and lead to asthma, recurrent pneumonitis, or chronic lung disease and fibrosis as a result of inflammation of the lungs from aspiration. Burning tongue and dental caries may also be caused by the acid-reflux.
my mom died of throat cancer two years ago,I am having problems with my throat swelling on inside and out,my dr has order lab work,and in the morning I am to be at the hospital at 7;30 for ultrasound on my throat,and another test,could it be cancer?
I have a multicystic nodule on my left thyroid and every now and then i get a pain in my neck followed by a minor sore throat and some hoarseness due to a cough i usually only get when it flares up. I recently have been getting an upset stomach almost everytime i eat and i thought it was due to my acidic levels. if i follow your advice about the antacid, would it help my thyroid at all, or just the neck pain, cough, hoarseness, and stomach aches?
Continual throat clearing Chronic throat irritation Chronic cough Hoarseness Excessive phlegm the throat Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) Constant sensation of something in the throat Swallowed food comes back up Post nasal drainage Weak voice Cracking voice Blockage of the breathing passage Spasm of the larynx (voice box) Wheezing Heartburn This condition is a result of both UES and LES not working correctly. And it is possible not to have typical gerd/acid reflux symptoms.
I have no history of digestive problems, heartburn, etc. My neuro said the swallowing, hiccups and hoarseness could be related to my brain stem lesion. I've not come across anything that says a sore throat could be MS related, but maybe it is?. Any ideas? Do you think all of this is possibly related?

Over the last 3 weeks I've been experiencing a "lump" like feeling in my throat, slight hoarseness, pain in my ears, and most recently pain on my trachea. I've been on 2 different Antibiotics, Prednisone, and Prilosec since these symptoms appeared. The Prednisone worked wonders but, 2 days after I finished it, the symptoms returned. The weirdest thing about it is it's not like I've been down and out sick. The trachea pain is what has me really worried.
