Botox

I am about to have another Botox treatment under general anaesthetic (my fourth).  The Botox lasts about 5 months and my voice returns to almost normal for that time.  Unfortunately Botox wears off and has to be repeated.  Anyone else with similar experience?See More

Profile Information

How would you define your voice problem?
spasdomic dysphonia
Tell us a bit more about your voice problem... (optional)
It's been two years now since my voice problem became noticeable. I have seen an ENT specialist, speech therapist, vocal osteopath, I've had acupuncture, Alexander technique and medication for acid reflux but my voice is getting worse. I am about to have hypnotherapy in the hopes that something will work!
Tell us a bit about you.... (optional)
I used to be a teacher (out in Gambia for the past two years) a singer, actress and often gave lectures on Buddhism. (chanting is the main part of my Buddhist practice, which I can no longer do) I have used my voice extensively throughout my life, so to find myself with a steadily worsening voice problem is really affecting me in many ways.
Tell us what you would like to get from this site/The Lary Project.... (optional)
I would like support, advice and to not feel so alone.
