I do have hoarseness, I've had it for about 6 mon. I've been to ENT and had vocal cord check...came back ok. My thyroid comes back ok too, although I have a mass on left thyroid...they say to watch. I am concerned with my voice and pain when talking. Forget abut singing...well I understand how you feel. This is frustrating....if you find out amything let me know! helpless880
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. If it is normal then why so much pain and hoarseness? I havne't gotten any real answers.
www.vitalstim.com website and read up on the stimulation therapy. It might help.
I'm at 11 months and counting. If you have any questions, just ask away. I will answer what I can.
I have been told that some people loses their voice/hoarseness for years and its a part of having thyroid issues.
I also have hoarseness on a regular basis. It's so annoying! I sound like I have a cold or my voice is not its normal deep tone. Sometimes my voice sounds as though I'm speaking in a soft or a weak tone because the strength and natural resonance of my real voice is being compromised.
Thanks for all your comments, forgot all about this post, but still have hoarseness. I love this site, now i know i am not alone and it is somewhat comforting. I asked my endo and she said she had no clue why i was hoarse!!!! i knew hoarseness came with hypo, but was not sure about the hyper. Thanks all.
Good day! I have hoarseness for almost 8months now, as time goes by it's getting worst. I'm a college student and it's very difficult to interact w/ the class. often I just isolate myself from others, since i can't make a good conversation with them due to my voice. :(( i have visited an ENT doctor he has no clear findings, but just gave a medicine prescription instead, but still it doesn't work. Do you have suggestion about this problem? :'(
