When you have MS can it effect your vocal cords so you cant speak? I have a new chest cold and have a dx of MS and feel ok but have lost my voice. Can these two things be related?

Having a chest cold I'd say is the culprit for the reason you have lost your voice.

However if your chest cold clears and your voice is not any better or gets worse, a visit to your doctor should be in order.

Now with this said...MS can affect just about any part of your truth there are no boundaries when it comes to MS...

Viruses / bacteria can actually makes ones MS worse or bring out new / old symptoms...even a slight fever could cause havoc.

Best wishes,
