20. spasmodic dysphonia
It's a neurological-control disorder manifesting in the vocal cords.

Treatment involves first numbing the skin of the neck and then injecting Botox directly into the vocal cords.

This temporarily disconnects the nerve-to-muscle signals and reduces abnormal muscle activity while still allowing normal speech.
