What is happening to my voice?

by Rogerjack

I am 25 years old male. Recently I've been having problems with my voice. My voice tends to squeak and creak and sometimes just disappear when I'm out of breath, tired, or in a stressful situation i.e angry or upset or nervous. This has started happening only recently making it very difficult for me to communicate. For a long period of time i thought it was a bad throat but the problem continues. I do smoke but not a lot, the frequency is around 3-4 each day. Why is this happening? What do I do?

Recommend Therapy

I would recommend a consult with an ENT and speech pathologist that specializes in voice disorders. It could be many things. The smoking does not help, even a little bit is an irritant. However, it could be many things from reflux to voice misuse to something on the vocal cords impeding them closing and moving properly. The only way to know and how to help is an evaluation.

Good luck!
