Question: I've lost my voice!

arenjohnson - Thu Jul 29, 2004 5:59 pm

When I woke up this past Monday morning (about 7 a. m.), my throat was a little sore. The soreness went away by lunch time, but so did my voice. It is now Thursday. When I get up in the mornings, my voice is fine, but after talking at work for a few hours, it once again becomes a whisper. I have absolutely no other symptoms. My throat is no longer sore. My head nor chest are congested. Any ideas?

It looks like you developed laryngitis (inflammation of the 'voice box'). It will take some time to heal. Probably a bit longer than your throat infection (pharyngitis). Try not to exhaust your vocal cords while in the healing period.
