I could really use some advise from everyone who has had FND that caused them issues with their voice.
My FND issues started out in Dec of 2008, when I caught a cold, and I lost my voice. My cold came and went, but my voice has continues to have problems ever since.
We originally thought maybe it could have been due to acid reflux, as I was battling with it at the time, which lead me to having stomach surgery to correct the problem. Unfortunately, all it corrected was the reflux. My voice continued to have on again, off again problems and now swallowing problems.
I have seen multiple specialists, one of which helped me to get 6 consecutive months worth of my voice, only to have it go out again. 2 years after my voice issues I began having movement issues from head to toe as well as non epileptic AND epileptic seizures that I had never had before.
I have been to cbt, psych, physical and speech therapies, with multiple docs. We were fortunate to find the right meds for seizures, and it has knocked them way down, and over the years the moments have significantly decreased thank goodness! But my speech therapist have tried everything they can think of under the sun to help. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn't. 🤷 I have become so unpredictable which is not fun.
If you have dealt with speech issues, and have found things to overcome them, my therapist and I would greatly appreciate your advise!
