Question: Update-Now voice gone, difficult swallowing, neck sore-Help!

 wreckabec - Wed Sep 29, 2004 12:58 pm

Update from yesterday's I need to go to ER? Was strangled, sort of, never lost consciousness. Breathing feels "tight". Difficulty swallowing. Neck is sore (probably bruised). These were all "delayed" symptoms after the incident. Now, today (1.5 days later) my voice is going. Could all of this be from an injury to my neck, larynx, trachea or something along those lines? Do I need to see someone? Please help!

User avatar Hi!

If not at the ER, a check-up with your doctor could help exclude major injuries and get meds to releive the pain and inflammation.

Thanks Bill. Unfortunately my health insurance has lapsed and my new policy doesn't kick in until the middle of next month. Is this something that must be treated, or will it go away on it's own?
