Hi Elle,

I had a change in my voice and I was told it was bcuz I also had post nasal drip.....not sure, but I still after my surgery am having it....my voice actually gets raspy.

I am not sure if there is documentation that chiari can directly afect the voice, but I do believe it could affect the sinuses which would cause the post nasal drip.

Huh,  I thought it was allergies but I can't really carry a tune anymore and my throat is raspy sounding now.

yeahh...same with me...im a pretty good singer, its what i do , but recently my singing voice has not been that good...so i think its from chiari but im not 100% sure...one of my 3 doctors said that chiari can sometimes cause a change in your voice.
