Neck spasms. Voice is hoarse with difficulty in swallowing. Sounds like?

I am a 41 year old female, 135lbs, nonsmoker, healthy eater and no known allergies . I ve recently found myself having neck spasms and have been seeing a chiropractor for relief . Occasionally when my neck is particulary bad my voice becomes hoarse. This past week with my pain has come a new symptom- difficulty swallowing . Do you think this is spasm related or something different that needs to be investigated? Thank you for your response.

Hi, thanks for using HCM.

muscle spasms are common, But as your symptoms are associated with other symptoms, better to get examined and serum calcium and phosphorus levels need to be test done.
