Your post brought back some memories. That was my son from Nov 06 to July 07. He had been diagnosed with sclero the fall of o6 and his voice went long with the diagnosis. I couldn't figure out if it was caused by fatigue, restrictive lung disease (lack of air coming out of his lungs) or fibrosis of the vocal cords. It was probably a combination of all three. There were days when we couldn't even get a whisper out of him. After he started the Plaquenil last June 07, his voice was the first to return to normal. His thyroid is fine. Best wishes for you.
Take care, Everyone.

I have this too and I think it has to be from the disease. I suffer from some really bad acid reflux attacks so I always wonder if it's eating away at something that takes my voice away. People say they can't hear me and I have to speak up and I think that I always sound like I have a cold now.

Thought I would chime in here, too
I'm struuggling with the same thing, so I'm going to be seeing an ENT... as I posted on another earlier thread.
My throat gets tired if I do much talking.
Peggy, I have GERD also and I've too, wondered if this palyed into this. However, my thyroid, even parathyroid are under suspicionby the endocrinologist I saw last week. He's going to have me run the gammet, in order to rule other things out.
I'll let you know what I find out!

I have hear of one case where sclero caused inflammation to occur around her voice box. It could be heart burn. Do you use any inhalers? My inhalers make my voice raspy cause I forget to rinse my throat out after using them. It's also further aggravated because of chest congestion.
take care, peanut
