Vocal Cord Damage from Stroke
A woman taking the birth control medication Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella can experience many serious side effects such as stroke due to these medications. Unfortunately, strokes are severe medical emergencies which in turn carry their own health complications. In particular, a person who has suffered a stroke may lose control over their vocal cords because of the nerve damage associated with stroke.
If you have suffered a stroke or other such health complication after taking Yaz, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be eligible for financial compensation. For more information regarding your legal options against the Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella drug manufacturer, contact the Ocella drug injury attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
Stroke and Vocal Cord Paralysis
Vocal cords can become paralyzed because of brain damage caused by a stroke. Strokes cause the rapid destruction of brain tissue, which can drastically affect the individual’s nervous system. This can disrupt the brain’s ability to send control signals to areas such as the vocal cords, and the person may lose the unconscious ability to open and close these flaps of tissue.
Without control over the vocal cords, a person can experience the following problems:
- Difficulty or inability to breathe
- Problems with speaking or loss of voice
- Trouble with swallowing
Depending on the severity of the vocal cord damage, a person may require emergency treatment to prevent possible suffocation.
