From this study (2 years ago):
Developed a vibrating voice quaver at the same time had twitches lips and throat during vasculitis flare
From this study (2 years ago):
I developed a voice quaver during my last flare of vasculitis. I could feel fasciculations in my throat. I have had facial and foot fasciculations before I was ever put on prednisone during episodes of illness. I have recently been told (surprisingly) that it is the prednisone that would have caused this quaver. It resolved before I finished my last course but comes back from time to time to a lesser degree. Could it really be the prednisone?.
