Does anyone experience a hoarse voice? I've had fibro for 25 years. Today I went to an ENT and was told that my vocal cords are not closing completely, probably due to the fibro.

hi, my doctor also thinks I have fibro. I have had symptoms for over 2 years along with hoarsness that has not stopped, its been consistent. I to am seeing a ENT, Im not sure what they will tell me but I hope all will be ok. If you would like to talk sometime please feel free to email me. [email protected]

Did anyone answer you? I have the same problem with hoarseness, people think I'm ill or have a cold. It gets worse with increased pollution.

I had hoarseness and a sore throat earlier this year it went on for several months I had throat sprays lots of antibiotcs eventually it went away. I wish my doctor had realised it was prob a symptom of fms rather than give me lots of antibiotics etc.It is so hard to believe that so many different symptoms are due to the fms, even at the moment a red itchy rash over mainly the arms and legs.Nothing seems to releive it, anyone else out there ever experienced skin problems like this?

My mother, who has had FMS for about 6 years, has had a very hoarse voice for awhile and has went to a few different doctors. She was taking mediciation for "Silent Reflux", I think Prevacid, but her hoarseness is not getting any better. They have now referred her to a speech therapist. They are also looking into a possible symptom of FMS. I was diagnosed with FMS last year and I have a hoarse voice that comes and goes. Maybe it is a symptom of FMS.

Yes I have had the red itchy rash and it has been diagnosed temporarily as Dermatitus Hepiformis. I say temporarily as the doctor (Gastro) said I should see a dermatologist when I have another outbreak and have it tested. This would mean you also have Celiac Disease which I was diagnoed with 2 years ago. My pain specialist feels I have Fibro and my GP agrees with him. I am a newbie to all this. I had been referred to a speech therapist several years ago for the hoarseness but she said nothing was wrong with my speech. It comes and goes - mostly if I talk a lot. Good luck and good health.

For years, I thought it was from living in the way-too-polluted Yugoslavian province of Kosovo- post war! This is something I had never imagined- fibro related!?? Wow. Answers some questions.
