Other than carrying a couple of stones extra, I'm fit and healthy.

Slight Asthma and Haemophilia, but nothing that I can complain about compared to other people.

Broke a few bones over the years, left leg fibula and tibula, big toe on my right foot and my left elbow.

That's a full house you have there.

I have Laryngoharyngeal Reflux and I wouldn't it wish it on my worst enemy. It's the biggest ball ache I have ever experienced and I have it on a daily basis. Makes my anxiety/depression seem like a breeze in comparison.

It has affected my vocal chords although I can speak normally. My voice will occasionally break if it gets really bad but what I did notice was that my ability to produce higher pitched sounds has been almost eradicated. Constant clearing of the throat plus acid/pepsin/bile exposure has caused some long term damage I'm sure.

how long did it take your voice to return to normal? mine started in july and my voice is a shadow of its former self, been having to do vocal exercises and relaxation techniques which have done some good. at the moment i cannot raise my voice at all and my normal voice is only present about 10% of the time.

really sorry for anyone suffering from any ailments.

Never really had any issues apart from asthma when I was younger but its not really a problem now.

I did Kidney stones a while back and the pain was unbearable at times, cause a couple of infections and impaired kidney functions for a while.

Thats about it, greatest day of my life when I finally passed them.

lasted a couple of monyhs overall, could not imagine living with issues longterm.

My voice hasn't deteriorated to that extent apart from occasional hoarseness caused by laryngitis. I do seem to be going through a bad spell again but sometimes I do eat/drink the wrong things that will exacerbate it. However, eating and drinking like a nun is almost impossible it seems.

Not something I suffer from although I used to suffer from chronic reflux and damage to my oesophagus causing problems swallowing anything from bread to water. The end result was to have a laparoscopic fundoplication. Not the most fun thing to have done as ended up on soup for about 6 months after the operation. Lost loads of weight though! Since then I have never had reflux - a 100% fix :D and after what I had been suffering, it was a miracle - I'd have hugged the surgeon if he hadn't died in a plane crash. Side effect can be annoying though... wind. Farting and burping are very necessary. Swallowing starchy food like bread/chips etc. can still be a problem though and since the surgery I have never been able to throw up!
Maybe worth asking the doc/specialists about the procedure?

Rotator cuff calcification - steroid injections and possible keyhole surgery imminent.

Underactive thyroid - controlled by pills, overweight/stupid as a result!

Constant bad temper/cynicism - genepool malfunction!
Thoughts and prayers.
