Update on the throat sensation… So I went to the ENT 2 weeks ago…he actually ran a fiber optic scope down my nose and looked at my vocal cords… Ive been having trouble with my voice. (Im a consultant who teaches – use my voice alot) He said my muscles around my vocal cords were aggravated, he called it Muscle TEnsion Dysphonia. He said it causes a sensation in the throat as if something is there… I have allergies and possibly mast cell issues one top of that. Plus I think there could be a relationship to EDS and the tissue around the throat area….. Then add some anxiety to boot sometimes… then globus kicks in so sometimes we dont know what it is exactly..we just have to treat the symptoms the best we can…… Im actually having to go to speech therapy to retrain my muscles around my vocal cords to stop squeezing in. ENT told me to STOP clearing my throat if possible and always try to have a lozenge or candy at times to keep my throat wet. Sugar makes things thick in there too :(. Good Luck!
Please let us know how that’s going, Tracy! So many of us deal with voice changes (including me). My ENT said I had a thickening of my vocal cords with tiny vessels running down each one. All I could think of was “Male Puberty”! Agh! My son has constant throat clearing which we think is mast cells. That’s a very common symptom. Hang in, Sweetie, 🙂 Diana
