Occasionally, you may experience periods of a hoarse voice or lose your voice altogether due to rheumatoid arthritis (RA). When inflammation occurs in a small joint located in your neck near the vocal cords - called the cricoarytenoid joint - your voice is affected.
If voice loss or hoarseness persists, you should see your doctor or consult an ear, nose and throat (ENT) specialist to rule out other causes.
