Avatar m tn Now this problem with my throat and losing my voice. Is it really caused by anxiety or is it something else. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hot honey and lemon drink. Hot tea and if your throat is still sore salt gargle. Which is hot water with as much salt as you can, then gargle about three times. It tastes revolting but it always kills my sore throats fast.
Avatar f tn Every winter I lose my voice. My throat doesn't get sore anything but it gets real dry. It almost feels like, and this is gonna sound gross but I don't know how else to describe it, there is hardened snot in my throat. When I eat something or drink something warm it kind of breaks up a little and I can cough some of it up but it's not phlegm. It's like a real hardened snot kind if like the consistency of a just moistened corn flake.

Avatar n tn My father is 59 years old and has been smoking for a long time. He started losing his voice about a year ago and went to see a Otolayngologist who did a biopsy. They found out it wasn't cancer but sores and gave him medicine. He's been taking the medicine for some few months now and will see the doctor for a follow up. His voice is not getting any better, and is actually worsening it sounds like he is a squealing mouse or wheezing excessively.

I went to Boston ENT. They did a scope up my nose down my throat. said it looked fine and to get a appt. with larangology. He uped my protonix. But i have not had stomach issues it is under control. He also said it could be anxiety, but i have had that all my life and never lost my voice.

Avatar f tn I have a sore throat that feels like a big lump in my throat and my voice is hoarse and i have difficulty in swallowing, this has been for about 5 weeks and no meds so far as cured it. Could the throat thing be connected to my thyroid or my fibro. Feeling very depressed at the moment.
Avatar f tn my mom is having her voice box remove due to throat cancer she is 71 years old, 98 pounds, never been sick before the cancer. Has any one had this done or know someone who has had it done , what is the recovery like?
Avatar n tn However, 2 months later I barely have a voice and the sore throat is still there, I also have sensations running up my head from my ear to the top of my skull, nobody has given me a definitive reason for this. My family doctor believes the laryngeal nerve was damaged and has put me on neurontin, helps every now and then, the voice will strenghten fo 2 or 3 hours and then "poof" it's gone again.
Avatar n tn You should definately see an ENT. I lost my voice for 6 weeks after surgery, even though my vocal cords were not damaged during surgery. It sounds like it needs to be done. My tumor was also large 4.8cm.
Avatar m tn m a little worried, because I want to be opera singer, I have the voice, I have everything to be, however, I worry a little that in the future I throat cancer develops implementing caused by HPV, and that makes me lose my voice. Currently I have a steady partner, but I want to have it, so I have raised the following questions: 1.debo oral sex leave to care for my voice? 2.es throat cancer HPV as common as it does the press think?. 3. is opornuto to continue with my studies as a singer?
Avatar f tn What do you mean "some tissue?" Like a goiter, "growth" My sons both had mono & never lost their voice. My youngest son had so many strep throat cases that he finally got his tonsils & adnoids removed at 5 years old. Never lost his voice. Why is he losing his voice?? From "some tissue," his thryoid, or what? What was the doctors explanation on why he has no voice. That would be my question.
Avatar m tn I went to an ENT in September concerned I might have some type of throat cancer. Especially since Michael Douglas came out saying he had it and was hoarse. The ENT said I was not at high risk because I don't smoke or drink but since I was so concerned he looked at my throat and voice box with a scope. He said every thing looked normal except for a little swelling in the back of my throat. I've started taking my medicine for reflux again but don't really see much improvement.
Avatar m tn I am a 43 year old male with left vocal fold cancer treated with radiation approx 1 year ago (no history of smoking or alcohol; ENT cannot determine cause for my cancer). My voice and left vocal fold improved following radiation until approx 3 months ago when my voice became hoarse again and I developed mild pain in my throat, neck and ear (although a small bit of dysplagia on my left vocal fold remained following radiation; however, when biopsied it did not indicate cancer).
Avatar f tn It could be due to varied causes like upper respiratory tract infection like laryngitis or pharyingitis, head and neck cancer, oral cancer, reflux laryngitis in people who have acidity and GERD, muscle abnormality, voice box abnormality, polyps, tumors or weakness of voice box etc. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
