Hello,

I noticed that since april, whenever i exhale with strenght (like after a deep breath) my vocal cords vibrate in a hoarse way. I have acid reflux, but it is treated since years. I feel like a tension in throat. Could that be related to als, since sometimes it seems to start with voice changes?I dont have any other ALS sympthoms (was checked for that earlier in the year). I was checked at an ENT doctor, who said all was fine.

That is such an extreme stretch I'm surprised it didn't break.

Please read the sticky post titled 'Read before posting'. Most informative!

There are newer drugs available for acid reflux than in previous years, and non-drug therapy such as papaya tablets is always worth a try as well. With better treatment, your symptoms will likely improve.

Best,
Laurie
