Paradoxical Vocal Fold Movement

Clearly, I did not feel nearly challenged enough by my diagnosis of having a subglottic stenosis. Consequently, I also developed paradoxical vocal fold movement (PVFM). Basically, my vocal cords open when they should close, and vice-versa.

The symptoms of PVFM mimic those of subglottic stenosis. Both conditions are physiological disorders. The symptoms of PVFM are especially likely to be exacerbated during periods of increased stress. (Honestly, what condition doesn’t worsen when we feel more stressed).

  1. your personal medical challenges are certainly educating me on what it is like to live with conditions I have never heard of, but can only imagine what it would feel like. Prayers for you, Bonnie
