Thread Name: Thyroid and allergy affecting voice
Subject: RE: Thyroid and allergy affecting voice
I am a member of a Choral Group and recently my voice has been giving me huge problems. I used to have such a lovely singing voice but now it breaks down, squeaks, and I loose breath and start fits of coughing! It is so embarrassing and I don't want to disrupt a choir with it. We are performing live in May and I think I may back out of it much as I so enjoy the singing. I think I may leave the Choral for good alas because of this problem. I'm 54 but there are women and men there in their 70's whose voices are really good. I do have an under active thyroid and I am taking eltroxin for this and now I wonder, after reading the other posts, is this what's causing my voice distress. Is there anything I can gargle with that might help me. I'm losing my confidence rapidly in this regard.
