Comment from: Frustrated, 55-64 Female (Caregiver) Published: December 05

My husband has hoarseness of voice for the past 3 years. He has seen at least 6 ENT specialists all giving differing diagnoses and treatment from GERD, spastic dysphonia, postnasal drip with phlegm, sulcus vocalis, ageing and gap in vocal cord (latest). He had speech therapy, Botox injections, antibiotics, phlegm and Chinese medicine, myasthenia gravis medicine (from a physician friend). He is now mistaken for a woman on the phone. He is frustrated and depressed that often we do not understand what he says. I really do not know what to do next.

I have had hoarseness for over 18 months. I see an ear, nose and throat specialist. I take Nexium and another medication. I just had an endoscopy, they did a biopsy and said everything was good but yet I continue to have hoarseness on a daily basis.
