I have problems with my singing voice. The symptoms are mucus on the folds when singing and the voice wants to break making high notes difficult or singing softer tones. This has been going on for at least 8 months. I can still speak fine but it is affecting the control of my singing voice,
My vocal folds have been looked at by an ENT and said there was no problem, not a surprise since I take voice lessons and use my voice properly.
Other symptoms are post nasal drip. Have been taking clarinex and nasal spray but don't feel that it has solved the problem.
When my problems started I thought I had overused my voice so I didn't speak for 3 days, but it didn't have any effect.
I tried taking double dose omeprazole for two months no change in case of acid reflux. Also quit dairy and wheat, no change.
It seems like such a great mystery. I'm going back to the doctor soon and was wondering if you have any tips on what I should ask for. Could it be an anatomical problem making drainage difficult? Could doctors have missed something?
I have done allergy tests and was positive for some, but have done my best to decrease exposure. I don't have symptoms like itchy eyes or sneezes, but my problem persists.
I drink a lot of water and have tried decongestants, but it doesn't make my voice 100%
