Does anyone have problems with muscle spasms that effect throat and voice?
I have had something very similar. I have had problems mostly when trying to swallow food or meds my throat will spasm. It can be really scary and feel like I am going to choke to death. But mine has never caused problems with my voice.. Hope you feel better soon, Gentle hugs, Pam
I have actually had tremors in my vocal chords just as I do in my arms. Its very strange
Hi Danadoo... it sounds like the esophageal spasms that I've had. It got so these spasms were so painful that I finally went to a gastroenterologist.
He did an endoscopy procedure to look at my throat ... bottom line was that I had a small ulcer from stomach acid and one of the muscular rings in the esophagus was constricted down smaller.
However, these spasms did not affect my voice... but I could not even swallow saliva when they occured... plus they were very painful! I suppose the spasms could happen only on one side of your throat... but go to a doctor to find out what is happening.
If I were you I'd go to at gastro man and have it looked into. I was prescribed Aciphix and that stopped the spasms!
Hope this helps... blessings to you... CarolK
