What was wrong with the professor’s voice?
As a professor, Catherine Cutter’s voice was her livelihood. But in 2008, after Cutter’s strong alto voice deteriorated into a raspy whisper, she feared her academic career might be over. The problem began with a lump in her throat. In June 2008, Cutter awoke one morning feeling that something was stuck in her throat. After several weeks, her voice became increasingly raspy. Two months later, no better, Cutter began feeling a spasming sensation when she spoke. She had also noticed something odd: Her voice was normal for the first hour after she awoke and if she sat down or propped her feet up, it got stronger. She began getting migraine headaches and felt an intermittent but intense pain. What was causing the condition?
Option 1: Glossopharyngeal neuralgia
Option 2: Spasmodic dysphonia
Option 3: Thyroid cancer
Option 4: Myasthenia gravis
Option 5: Eagle syndrome
