Hi I am a male and seem to have that morning voice issue where my voice is quite fine up until midday then it gets raspy and high pitched towards the evening. I've never tried medication or treatment mainly because it really is very temperamental. The majority of the time it is tolerable and ok but sometimes it literally is horrific. One thing that seems to help I believe is cardio activity and then lots of water afterwards. I find my voice is almost acceptable in depth if I do this, but only half an hour or so after the activity. if I don't exercise or especially if I am very tired my voice is terrible and could quite easily be compared to a female voice. Sometimes when I'm drunk it seems to get worse as well,which is strange because I usually always thought alcohol made it better and relaxed my body and organs and everything. By the way this all started from smoking marijuana heavily when I was a teenager.I have stopped for 10 years yet it remains the same... Can you shed any light on this? Could it be nodules or systs etc? I have experienced many difficult times from this and unbelievable anxiety from it as well.... As I said I've never got my vocal chords checked because my voice isn't bad all the time and can be tolerable. Thanks.
