I've had laryngitis twice in five years and once when I was about 8 and now I have no higher voice and it cuts out all the time. Is that normal?

Notably, Percocet can exacerbate GERD by slowing stomach emptying time. Step 2 may be to have the vocal cords visualized by ENT (another scope). Afterward, you may benefit from voice therapy. Finally, rule out allergic asthma/rhinitis ...Read more
