Brief Answer:
I think you need evaluation.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Madam,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I think you need urgent evaluation , there is a possibility that your your cricoarytenoid joint is being involved because of Rheumatoid arthritis , that is leading to hoarseness of voice. Also we need to see if you are not developing hypothyroidism which can lead to all this . You will need to see an ENT specialist for the same .

Please send me your latest test reports and feel free to ask any query you want .

Take care.
