Here goes the wierdest question I have asked for awhile. (Cats were are you)
For the last few months, I have noticed that by 5-7 pm everyday, my voice goes. (and I talk very little at work)
It's not that I can't talk, or that I lost my voice completely, but there is a very noticable
difference. Needless to say this is when I am most exhausted.
My GP looked at my throat, took an xray of the ole vocal chords and could not find inflamation
or anything abnormal.
Could it be that this is another, symptom....or aftermath of MS.  I haven't chatted with my neuros
about it yet, but thought I would put it out and see what the forum says.

Hey Snowdog!

Good to see u again! Yes, i've been told it is a symptom of ms. Sounds a little shaky or in and out? I'm not sure how to explain that (Uppity take it away! :) but it should be something u'r neuro can chalk up to the ms. Most likely, it comes on so late because u'r tired by then. I was told by a very wise person once that u'r symptoms can come on from being tired same as from being stressed. Do u come home and rest any between 5-7? I can tell u that when things start to act up with me i sit down! I stop as soon as i can and in about an hour or two i'm MUCH better. I hope it clears up for u soon...and the burning lips doesn't happen again either! Take good care and let us know what the neuro says.

I dunno...seems reasonable that your vocal cords could be involved with MS-related things, though. They are a muscle, and have nerves. You've had your throat checked out -- which would have been my first recommendation....and note that it seems to occur most often when you're most tired..

I'd certainly put it on my list of things to ask about at my next dr. appointment....

Hi snowdog,
Yes, it definately can be from the MS.  A while back there was an article I posted about swallowing and I believe it addressed voice changes as well.  Parkinson patients also have voice changes.
Take care.... :-)

My voice does become raspy.  That just started and I've had MS since 1990.
