the latest thing i notice is being tired to talk; i used to have this when i was so severely exhausted;
now it seems i can have moderate fatigue and throat area seems a bit constricted; tiring to talk; tiring to think about talking (on phone or anything); it's like every word takes a bit of puff out of you, that doesn't get restored, and you lose 'compression' and energy.
it could be my thyroid playing up again too. throat and front of neck area seem congested. would be a choking feeling if it was really bad.
it would be really bad to lose my voice...
I'm not sure if this is what you mean, but i have had something very similar happen on and off several times. I feels like breathing takes way too much energy and it would be easier just to not do it. if I remember right talking kind of went along with it. The first time I actually thought i was dying and went to the er. they said potassium and magnesium were way too low. the next time it happened, I knew that wasn't the problem, at least not entirely, but it couldn't hurt to drink some gatorade/powerade or maybe take some supplements next time it happens to see if it helps at least a little. best of luck.
ok it has improved but comes and goes. my latest thyroid tests showed normal (good!). i think my anxiety so don't breathe deeply and even have apnea, so this is bad for oxygenation and circulation... so it's probably part of it - breathing just being too much work!
just go easy on the gatorade; it can energise but in fact draws on your own resources for this short term energy; like putting rocket fuel in a small car - it'll give it a boost up the road but will take it's toll on the car.
thanks for pooling experiences!
