Sleep Disorders/Involuntary Noises When Sleeping

There may be another answer as I have this also. A little known throat problem involves the nerves and may possibly come from a form of herpes virus. It can paralyze a vocal cord. Symptoms include sounding out of breath or hoarse and choking when you first take a drink of water. My problem was solved through surgery with a small implant that pushes my vocal cords together supporting the one vocal cord that is paralyzed. I continue to make the "humm" sound usually just as I am falling asleep. It has to do with the relaxing of the vocal cords and is aggravated by being over weight. When I lost weight it went away and when I regained it, it returned. Consult an eye, ear, nose and throat specialist.

Hi, I am having this EXACT problem of involuntary noises at the
time i am falling asleep. I also try to characterize the sounds and said the same vocal voices like "uh" and more like "hmmmmm" Please can you put me in touch with the person as I need to know what this is we have. It is EXACTLY what I am dealing with now and have no idea what it is and how to stop it.
