Sd has no objective pathology that is evident through x-rays or imaging studies like a ct or mri scan, nor can a blood test reveal any particular fault. In addition, several other voice disorders may mimic or sound similar to it. The excessive strain and misuse of muscle tension dysphonia (mtd), the harsh strained voice of certain neurological conditions, the weak voice symptoms of parkinson’s disease, certain psychogenic voice problems, acid reflux, or voice tremor are often confused with sd. Therefore, the best way to diagnose the problem is to find an experienced clinician with a good ear. Who treats spasmodic dysphonia? Usually an otolaryngologist, a physician that specializes in diseases of the ears, nose, and throat (ent), diagnoses sd. Some otolaryngologists, called laryngologists, have additional postgraduate training and specialize in voice disorders. Many otolaryngologists work with a speech pathologist, a clinician who has expertise in the evaluation and non-medical treatment of voice disorders. A neurologist may also be part of the diagnostic team to evaluate a patient for other forms of dystonia or other neurological conditions. After taking the medical history, the physician and speech pathologist listen carefully to the person’s speech to subjectively identify specific signs of sd, such as voice breaks. To help differentiate the condition and subtype, they ask the patient to read and speak specific sentences loaded with certain sounds. While additional evaluations may help to support or refute the conclusion, the experienced clinician’s expert perceptual analysis usually serves as the basis for making the sd diagnosis. The physical examination continues by looking at the larynx in action. Even though the person with sd often has normal anatomy, the physician should look at the larynx to rule out other common laryngeal disorders that can result in a hoarse voice. cheap viagra online buy generic viagra cheap viagra online generic viagra online viagra for sale online pharmacy buy viagra from india generic viagra These include conditions such as vocal nodules or chronic laryngitis. One way to view the larynx is to insert a rigid endoscope, a straight, narrow metal rod containin. ****************************************************************
