I work in customer service and am on the phone all day. Since my VNS implant, i sound like im choking and losing my voice evert 5 minutes. Does the voice issue every go away or does it get worse?
Hi @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member , I have never had the VNS but @A MyEpilepsyTeam Member had it for a little bit & can share his experience with you. He said it wasn’t helping to much & so he had it removed & now has the RNS & has said that helps him some. Good luck. Your friend in Texas, Becky
That's the problem. It's been over a year. I was fine until I went back to work. I forgot to mention this to my neurologist.

When I first got the VNS, when it turned on it tickled my throat, made me cough and messed up my speech. However, after a week or so I got used to the vibration and I got back to where I could speak normally. So your voice will get back to normal and you won’t feel anything. When they raise the power on the VNS you’ll have issues again for a day or two but you’ll get used to it again.
My Neurologist is testing me for that. Good luck
