7. Hoarseness

Hoarseness is another symptom that may accompany dysphagia. In general terms, hoarseness refers to a weak or altered voice, making it difficult to say words clearly. Vocal fatigue is another term used to describe hoarseness. It might feel as if your vocal cords aren't working properly. When you have difficulty swallowing, the muscles of the throat may be the cause. These same muscles may also affect the vocal cords, causing you to have a hoarse voice. Overuse of the vocal cords may also lead to a tremulous voice. To treat hoarseness, rest your voice for a period.
