Reflux: This is typically the first sign of gastroesophageal reflux disease. There are many causes to it including: caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods, fatty foods, chocolate, citrus fruits etc. I would start by eliminating those from your diet and then starting omeprazole 20mg if your symptoms do not improve after 2-4 weeks. ...Read more

Im trying to quit marijuana slowly but my voice has changed cant acsess my high register Can i continue quiting slowly? Or do i have to quit right now

Im trying to quit marijuana slowly but my voice has changed cant acsess my high register Can i continue quiting slowly? Or do i have to quit right now

Just quit: You are just delaying things by "weaning" yourself off THC. There is no need to do this - you are not going to have physical withdrawl symptoms like with some drugs. You can and should just quit. Tell yourself this is bad, I don't need it, my body and life are more important to me than inhaling the smoke of a weed that kills my brain cells. And then just do it. No more excuses, no more weaning. ...Read more

I am 21. It has been over a year now since i took some bad hgh, my voice has changed to a weaker, raspy tone+muscles get sore fast. Will it reverse?

Need it checked: It may not reverse if it's already been a year. Anytime you have a voice change that lasts longer than 3 weeks, it is usually something abnormal. You need to have a doctor (ENT) take a look at your voice box. ...Read more

I'm 18 and don't have a lot of facial hair, my genitals haven't seem to grow much. My voice has changed and I have armpit hair tho. Low testosterone?

How's it working?: If you're horny like other guys your age, and are having erections and ejaculations like they are, then things are going to be fine. Around 5% of men never get chest or good facial hair. Mr. Newman (photo), considered the best-looking male specimen of his age, never complained. If you're not having an ejaculation at least every few days, get with your personal physician now. ...Read more

About 2 weeks ago i couldn't stop coughing and getting fevers. Now my singing voice has changed and everything i sing my voice cracks. How do I fix it?

Rest your voice: You probably have some inflammation of your vocal cords. I would rec. Resting your voice for at least two weeks-- no singing. If you sound hoarse when talking, then rest it with speaking also. Whispering actually makes it worse, so just write or text. If you still hear cracking after two weeks, see your doctor for an exam of your vocal cords. ...Read more

My voice has been changed  from last 6 months my dr told me that it is reflux.I  also i m allergic to dust & wheather change.?

True: This is all true, both of those things can cause a voice change but if you have a history of smoking, it may be a good idea to see an ENT specialist. Voice changes caused by medical problems will go away with treatment but a mass or nodule on your vocal cords will not and should be evaluated. ...Read more

Get Ready To Mutate: "Adolescent boys' voices often begin to mutate at 12-13 years of age and taper between 15-18. During this time, lower pitches tend to be more stable than upper pitch ranges, and most of the active changes tend to occur within one year." source: http://www.ncvs.org ...Read more

My13 yrs son  is now 148cm tall. He is very much worried about his height. His voice is not changed yet.Any exercise / medicine can help him?

Depends on situation: If his height progression is > 5-7cm/yr & he always been shorter than his age group, this may represent his genetic height. This would be consistent for an average parent height of 163 cm. If his parents are taller he may enter puberty later & grow after his friends stop. If growth is <5cm/y or no signs of puberty by 14 he should have a growth evaluation. Meds will not improve on a genetic height. ...Read more

My voice is really ugly. Is there a way that I can change my voice permanently?

Ugly how?: There are many voice problems which are correctable. If your voice is hoarse, raspy, or otherwise abnormal, then you should see your local laryngologist or ent. If you smoke, stop immediately. That will invariably damage the voice. Other problems like laryngeal reflux and vocal abuse may be causing the problem, and can be corrected. In some select cases, surgery may improve your voice. ...Read more
