What is adductor spasmodic dysphonia?

A:
Spasmodic dysphonia (SD) is a voice disorder, and adductor spasmodic dysphonia is the most common type of SD.

In adductor SD, the muscle spasms are out of control. They can stiffen and close the vocal cords. As a result, it can be hard for you to make a sound.

However, the condition does not occur during laughing, singing, whispering, or shouting.
