I do not want to go to my GP, he will just refer me to someone else. Who do I go to if I want to get my vocal cords and throat examined? I constantly have to clear my throat and when speaking in a low voice, it's very hoarse. What is another name for ENT (Ear Nose Throat) specialist? I can't find "ENT" on my insurance's provider list.
Re: Who do I go to to examine my throat/vocal cords?
I went to an ENT and he used that scope thing to view my vocal cords. I had same problem as you--hoarseness, sometimes no voice but a croaking sound! I was afraid of the scope, but it wasn't as bad as you think.
Surprise--nothing to do with my thyroid problem. It was stomach acid backing all the way up there! Now I've been taking NEXIUM 2x daily and my voice has improved in only 2 weeks.
You won't know what your real problem is until you get to the ENT. Good luck--hope it's not too serious. Let us know....
