Even before I was diagnosed with ms I had noticed that if I talked much my voice would catch or I would get hoarse. As a teen I lost my voice after cheering at games. I notice its so much worse now. It catches and fades away so much and I also have problems as I have a choking, coughing fit if I try to project it,etc. I find if I sing suddenly I realize my mouths moving but there's no sound. If I get emotional the voice also goes.
I have told my neurologist many times and he just says that's ms. Anyone experience this?
Yes, I also have this problem... My voice often goes hoarse... Before I even knew anything was wrong with me my friends would comment on how I sure was hoarse a lot...
The sad thing is it is a symptom of MS... My doctor has never offered up anything for it except to rest my voice when this happens and it will come back quicker... Sorry I'm not any help but maybe someone else can jump in...
I have damage to my autonomic nervous system from ms according to my drs. I am wondering if this contributes yo the voice problem. Good thing my kids are grown as I couldn't even yell at them now with this problem. Just kidding:)
I am going to tell my dh I have the Demi Moore voice. He likes her.lol
Wow, I never thought about it being related to my MS, but I can't talk for very long before my voice goes hoarse. I have 2 lesions on my brainstem, maybe it's related to that. I constantly carry a bottle of water with me.
