    Unhappy Hoarsness

    For three months now my voice has been hoarse. One endo dr. said the hoarsness could not be due to my thyroid. the next endo said the same ting. My gp said I had post nasal drip ( without even looking and wanted to perscribe steriods) I saw a ent specialist who took videos of my throat and found a vew polyps and a hemorage that must be removed. he said that this often hapens to people with hypothyroidism. Has anyone here experienced anything like this. I am going to have the surgery and I will n ot be allowed to talk for 7 weeks. How will I communicate with people? I teach reading.

    Re: Hoarsness

    Why can't hoarsness be a result of the thyroid? It is on the list of main thyroid dysfunction symptoms. Some times I wonder where people get there education and what there exact GPA was...

    I get periodic hoarsness along side of swallowing difficulty. I can also feel that my thyroid is swollen slightly and hard during these periods.. which makes me shrug and say... Humm my thyroid is being a pain in the neck again.

    If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.

    Re: Hoarsness

    Hi Louie,
    I just started on thyroxine a month ago and one of my first symptoms was a hoarse voice and my dr tried to tell me it was post nasal drip but when my TSH came back at 69, they admitted it was Hashi's, so a hoarse voice as said in the post before can of course be from thyroid. I also worked in an internist's office years ago and we had thyroid patients who routinely had hoarse or much lower voices. What is the matter with these drs???? Hope you have had your blood tested for thyroid problems, I also had swollen eyes and cheeks and that is from the high TSH. hope you can get some help!!

    Re: Hoarsness

    Sorry you are going thru. this---are you having the thyriod surgery and the throat surgery together at the same time???

    Make sure you have the best head/neck surgeon you can find. The vocal chords are so delicate!

    The fact that you have hurthle cells, and the polyps on the vocal chords means you really have to be agressive----hurthle cells can spread all over, and you want to catch everything early.

    I hope your surgery goes well, and I'm sure if you're a teacher, you can go on disability or something like that until you are strong enough to speak.
