I had this happen a couple of years ago. I developed head tremors and a shaky voice. The head tremors I still get from time to time, but I've not had any problems with a shaky voice. Your voice can be affected by an MS attack.
Hi I have voice problems. My voice will sound shaky, slurred, drop syllables and so on. I find it very frustrating.
It first happened around 1984 (I believe this was my first flare). It has never improved although some days are better than others.
I have seen a speech pathologist and had a fluoroscope done. Results...the muscles in my throat are weak. They close over my larynx but are not strong enough to remain there. So they vibrate or open at times. There is also a glitch in voice that my sp path has said she believes is neurological. She said she couldn't do that with her voice if she tried...lol
This has happened to me as well. It came on at the tail end of a flare. Started suddenly, like one minute I sounded like I usually do and then the next sentence came out all husky sounding like I was a chronic smoker or had bronchitis or was Demi Moore. It lasted about a week, and returned to normal nearly as abruptly as it came on. I had no change in sensation at all in my throat throughout experiencing that symptom. Could have to do with inflammation of the nerves innervating the muscles in that area, I guess.
My tremors affected my voice, too; I even had a neuro note it in her chart once during the tail end of a flare. I woke up this morning with my tremors active again, so I'll let you know if I get the shaky voice thing going on later; going to dinner at some friend's house, should be fun.
