Vocal fatigue is an often-misdiagnosed condition that is commonly seen in the professional voice user. Because, vocal fatigue can often present with little to no visible vocal pathology, traditional providers have typically provided incorrect diagnoses and temporary stopgap measures.
If left untreated vocal fatigue can ultimately lead to classical voice disorders as well as vocal impairment. Prompt evaluation of suspected vocal disorders or vocal fatigue is recommended to avoid complications.
