I have left vocal cord palsy
It started with cough during July this year. After the cough I used to choke. Doctor could not identified the issue and it was so severe that I admitted to hospital icu and was in ventilation for 3 to 4 days. CT scan shows swelling on my vocal cord which obstruct my wind pipe. After swelling is gone, doctor observed I have left vocal cord palsy. Till now not sure what causes this. I have done allergy test and all other test, but could not able to find out the exact reason. I was not able to speak. With medication I got my voice back towards the end of September and left vocal cord palsy was subdued. This month I again catched cold and left vocal cord palsy started again. Any pointers for diagnosis of this issue will be highly appreciated.

Please meet a Pulmonologist and get your chest scanned. A lung pathology could be causing your Left Recurrent Laryngeal nerve to be affected causing the Left Vocal Cord palsy!
