This was very helpful. Thanks! I'm scared to do it because I love my voice so much, so maybe I'll just live with it. Thanks for the info!

Thanks, I have been to the ENT and I am waiting to hear back from them. I have recently had severe pain down my left arm and shoulder.
HealthTap member
I have several enlarged lymph nodes and cysts in my neck and dr thinks tonsils are the cause. I'm very nervous, singing is my life.
