Question: Lost Voice

Yesterday I woke up with a Headache and a sore throat. Thought nothing of it. It hurt when I swallowed. Now today I woke up and I am unable to talk I have lost my voice and trying to talk is painful and swallowing is painful. My throat is in agony. I have drunk lots of liquids (even though it hurts) to help it but no improvement :( I cannot talk at all...

Sometimes after experiencing a a viral or bacterial infection, (upper respiratory infection, flu, common cold etc.) laryngitis or inflammation of the vocal cords occur. The inflammation causes hoarseness or loss of voice.
