Hi I was diagnosed with acid reflux two years ago. My question is can this cause weakness in my vocal cords? My vocal cords have also been weak for two years. Can vocal cords lose strength over time, and how does this happen? I am a talker and this has really been very hard to deal with. The acid burning sensation is all night and has been keeping me awake. I would appreciate any home remedy/information that can improve the strength in my voice. Thank you!
