Wondering if there are others with similar symptoms. I have always since childhood had a sore-throat feeling, difficulty swallowing the too mucus that gets produced maybe from nasal discharge or god knows, I have frequent canker sores, sensitivity of throat to certain liquids like vinegar, lemon, etc. All these symptoms have followed me into adulthood plus now I have developed a hoarse voice. Only sleeping at night helps. On waking up in morning, I frequently wet my throat (drink sips of water roughly every 15-30 mins) which is helpful till about Noon, after which voice becomes subdued and its difficult to speak (it requires more effort formulating speech, more energy and more focus to speak), as if my “voice” becomes seriously lethargic/fatigued with a altered pitch/sound. Compounding the issue is that I am a Stutterer as well.
I need to research as much on the issue myself, so I could assist my docs, cause otherwise I feel my symptoms are just too complex. A local ENT doc diagnosed it as LPR (after examining voice organs through a probe), though now it seems this might not be LPR after all. I have chronic belching/burping, and wondering if anyone experiences hoarse voice as a result of maybe excessive burps/belching? or maybe incorrect breathing patterns? symptoms like me where in morning you are ok, but during mid-day you become hoarse and sluggish?
