  • Hi,I am having trouble with my voice also, about a year and a half ago I had a paralyzed vocal chord. quivering tongue and my voice was very soft, barely perceptible and when I tried to talk and breath at the same time, I thought I would pass out. I visited many doctors, and finally my ENT suggested a neurologist. He did many tests but could not come up with anything. Fortunately I am better due to me resting my voice and not speaking much and I became better, but my voice was not as strong as before and everyone always would say huh!! because they could not hear me. So I've learned only to say what is necessary. Unfortunately my luck has run out everything is back, except for the paralysis, and I have a new symptom at times my words come out backwards at time or I sound as if I am drunk, people look at me sometimes and ask me what is wrong with me and laugh, so I laugh with them to cover up. I have to go back to the neurologist per my ENT, not looking forward to the tests again. If anyone out there knows an ENT who is the bomb and can help me in Cleveland, Ohio, please let me know. I wish you luck and please do the same for me.:confused:

  • Kymmie, Have you had an MRI? If your words are coming out backwards, your issue is almost certainly neurological. The textbook procedure at this point would be an MRI to check for tumors or injuries in speech-related brain areas like Broca's and the lateral cerebellum. I don't want to second guess your neurologist, but if your symptoms are getting worse an MRI is a really, really good idea.
