Vocal Cords Weak From Acid Reflex

Have weak voice and tremors.  Been to ENT and neurologist and have acid reflex and tightening in throat.  On Prevacid for 1 year and had every test 24 ph and gi tests first diagnosis with dystonia now they say corrosion from acid on my vocal cords.  Who should I believe?  Any suggestions?

Melissa Kim M.S., CCC-SLP replies...
Unfortunately, I cannot comment as to which diagnosis is accurate, or even whether both are accurate, without having evaluated you personally. If you don't feel as though you've been appropriately diagnosed, I would recommend that you seek out another opinion, specifically with a laryngologist (an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician who specializes in the treatment of voice disorders).

Good luck!
