    Default Lost Voice

    Does anyone else lose their voice during a flare? When I am in a flare, my voice randomly comes and goes. As a teacher, this is a very irritating development. I drink fluids as much as possible because my mouth gets so dry. I wonder if the dryness has anything to do with it.

    Hoarseness is not USUALLY a symptom of Lupus although it can manifest differently in different people. Has your doctor checked your thyroid? Have you been checked for other overlappying diseases such as Sjogren's? Often times those of us with o e AI disease end up with a secondary or overlapping disease as well. You might want to mention this symptom to your doctor. He/she may want to check for an overlapping disease. The good news is that the treatment is pretty much the same for most of them they just may have to do some adjusting
