Did the stroke cause my voice box?

Printer-friendly version


I was 36 and had a massive stroke May 19,2008. I didn't have any physcial problems just my language, memory,and side vision. On April 30th, 2010 I lost my voice I went to a doctor and he said my voice box was paralysis on the left side. He told me it might be a year before it comes back . It came back April 20,2011. On Oct.29,2011 I lost my voice again. I went back to the doctor and he has know answer for me. Do you have any answers for me?  Thankyou Nicole

Dear Nicole,


The only way to provide an answer is to have a look. There are many types of and many degrees of paralysis. Many of them can be improved upon with appropriate treatments. If you would like a 2nd opinion, I list a number of specialists invoice problems at http://www.voicedoctor.net/Physicians
