Patient :Hi, my friend has had a really bad throat and vocal problem for a while and we want to know what it is about. She had these symptoms:
- a "scratchy" voice
- shooting pain from ear to ear
- a "lump in the throat" sensation
- decreased pitch range
- voice and body fatigue
- vomiting feeling all the time
- dry throat
- pain in voice box and vocal cords
I was hoping someone could help diagnose or help us get an idea of what she must be suffering from. She is 16 years old and has felt this way since summer of 2014. Thank you very much.
