Sore throat and hoarse voice

Common Questions and Answers about Sore throat and hoarse voice

throat

i have had a hoarse voice for over a month now, no cough, or sore throat. It seems to get worse in the evening.
I have a sore throat that feels like a big lump in my throat and my voice is hoarse and i have difficulty in swallowing, this has been for about 5 weeks and no meds so far as cured it. Could the throat thing be connected to my thyroid or my fibro. Feeling very depressed at the moment.
OK, I know I'm jumping the gun because I haven't had my biopsy yet but I know from my reading that a hoarse voice is a sign of thyroid cancer. I have had a gravelly throat since October when I talk for more than a few minutes--not gravelly ALL the time--when they discovered a "cyst" in my throat next to the uvula. Wondering if it really wasn't a cyst all this time. How often would nodules appear on the inside of the throat.
I have experienced this once before I was diagnosed with MS and I developed a hoarse voice without a sore throat. I am a singer but this happened before all the major carol services/singing and it is still croaky now. I am not unwell, just a bit tired but hey that is fairly normal these days and to be expected with all the family home and additional cooking, housework not to mention Christmas.
This morning, I felt quite fine until I went to a language lesson with quite a lot of speaking and then I felt foggy in my head and congested in my ears- particularly left ear and when I went home my voice was hoarse- still quite hoarse with less foggy feeling and congestion. Does this add up to a head cold now or something else? Should I see a doctor? I need my voice to be clear for work tomorrow afternoon.
My voice began getting hoarse and cracky. Today I wokeup and my voice is completely gone.i was thinking maybe a cold because the weather is weird now so sometimes I go out dressed like its spring when it's cold. I also had oral sex a few days ago. Can you tell me what this might be?
Hoarseness is usually not thyroid -- but can be. An ENT specialist is the best person to see about the hoarseness. Borderline thyroid labs can often be watched without treatment -- would repeat in a few months to see a trend. Also would perform thyroid ultrasound and antibodies to complete the eval.
Every time i meet someone new, they ask me if i have a sore throat, if i lost my voice, or something of that sort. My voice always sounds scratchy and sometimes it cracks when i talk. I cant talk quietly, and i cant really scream. Also, when i talk for a long time, it becomes difficult for me to speak. Does anyone know what the problem may be or what i could do about it? Thanks!
Around 2-3 days later i noticed my voice becoming really scratchy and hoarse. Now about 5-6 days later my voice is really hoarse, deep and croaky plus im getting abit of acid reflux. Can vomiting so much and the acid effect my throat causing it to be sore along with damaging my vocals chords causing the hoarse voice? Or should i see a doctor?
I'm just getting over a really bad cold/sinus infection, but my voice has been extremely raspy and hoarse for over a week now. I've been taking my Flonase and Allegra-D but nothing seems to be helping. Also, when I talk, I have to cough because I can feel the fluid or drip just sitting there. Can someone tell me the best things to take to clear this up. I feel totally fine now except for this annoying raspy voice. I feel like I need to stress more to get the words out.
My lymph nodes became swollen and my throat has been sore and I've been sort of hoarse. It feels like a cold or something but nothing develops. The lymph nodes are decreasing as I become more euthyroid, maybe for the first time in my life I might be normal. Wow!
Also I have drainage and after clearing my throat a bit, my voice sounds hoarse. The sides of my neck aren't particularly sore, and neither is my throat - other than lower than my tonsils if feels raw and I am thinking from the draining. But, I don't know if any of this is from my thyroid...so it sounds somewhat similar. I have a doctor's appointment Monday - so we will see.
I started out with a sore throat and a cough. After a day of this it progressed to me almost losing my voice and having an excess of mucus that I just can't seem to clear. (I've tried to clear it to the point of vommiting.) When I blow my nose there is bright red blood in the tissue. As of now, I'm assuming that I have some sort of virus as a co-worker was coughing and complaining of a sore throat a few days ago. Any help would be most appreciated.
If this persists, have the doc run some Thyroid tests (including an ultrasound), have a scope done of the throat to see if any lesions are on the vocal cords, and try to rest the voice just in case it is simply an overuse problem.
Went to my ENT after the symptoms had gone away - except for my hoarse voice - that remained. He scoped me and said everything looked good. Cords moved properly and looked normal, but were a little swollen and there was a decent amount of mucus. Kept on Mucinex, started Prilosec, and he said I'd be good. Fast forward to now. It's been 3 months, the hoarseness STILL persists. My high range is still gone and my endurance is nonexistent.
Had total thyroidectomy in 1993 had a wonderful surgeon!!!!!! Scar is barely visible but as to the voice I never had a day's problem. I had a slight sore throat for a day or so.
Had to leave work today and may have to take time off as I have no voice. My sinus issues seem to be worse and digestion, may be causing this. My ENT is doing some tests. If anyone has suggestions , pls send my way. Thank you!!
I experience a tightness in the throat area and my voice becomes hoarse. As soon as I stop talking, for example, go to bed - the next morning my voice and vocal cords feel fine and the hoarsness is gone. I never experience it at work but don't talk as much at work. Is there something I can do about it or should I be worried about it.
I just took some ibuprofen for it and am drinking tons of water and ginger ale. My throat looks normal, not red or inflamed, no white patches. My lymph nodes feel no more swollen than usual (they've remained enlarged since my bout of mono 20 years ago). I wondered about oral thrush due to the antibiotics but I don't seem to have those symptoms, unless this very painful throat is one of them. My tongue looks normal.
My 9yr old has had a sore throat for about two weeks. Her throat is red but no visible white bumps or pus. Her voice is hoarse but she has no other symptoms.
No semen ever entered my mouth. A few days later I got really sick, sore throat, fever, and eventually lost my voice for a few days. When I recovered, my voice sounded different.. not hoarse per say, but just different, and was noticed by a few others. Ever since then, I could feel that my voice has not recovered. While my nose is not that stuffed or runny, there is always mucus present. It has gotten harder to swallow, and I can't drink liquids as fast as I used to.
I ended up vomiting and it burned my throat. 2 days later and my voice is hoarse and cracks when I speak sometimes. It is also sore. What should I do? Is this normal after puking and it takes time to heal or should I go to a doctor? Thanks!!
Long story short, when I was finally diagnosed with a hypothyroid condition and began treatment, the sore throat feeling and hoarse voice discontinued, as well as major clinical depression I had suffered for 4 years. Just a thought; one never knows...
I never had problems with my voice but 1 year back I started getting a hoarse voice and I like to sing a lot but I have been unable to hit the high notes. My voice has improved but it is not right. No pain or choking when I eat or drink. I feel sometimes like I have a coating of mucus around my vocal cords and once in awhile a little mucus comes up and then it feels clear for a bit. I have always had a strong voice since I had stage training.
Over a year ago I went to a Naturopath and the strict diet completely took away the mucus but gave me a hoarse voice. I ate all heathy foods and tonnes of almonds and nuts. I did research and found out that almonds can cause tight throat which causes hoarseness! Ever since then I have cut out peanuts and almonds to be safe. Speech therapy helped too with proper breathing techniques. And I guess there is always the basics to cut back on things like milk and cheese.
Tonight I developed this feeling in my upper right side of my throat. It feels like I have a lump in my throat right there and when I swallow food it is actually rather sore. It is only one spot in my throat. I am assuming it is my esophagus with the problem since it is worse upon swallowing food. What could be causing this? Should I seek emergency care or can this wait for my Gastro doc on Monday morning?
Not to try to worry you but tonsillitis and mononucleosis start with a sore throat. The height of the fever and duration and depth of the illness should be your signal to see a doctor. I would try Echinacea and Goldenseal Extract 3x/day, if after trying for a day and the symptoms persist see a doctor. The blood in the mucus could be that the swelling is very severe, don't wait too long.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Throat infections and thyroid causes have been ruled out. Sometimes it can also happen due to iron deficiency anemia causing Plummer-Vinson syndrome, where there changes to the soft lining of the throat causing hoarseness of the voice. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
I've been on Prilosec and I sleep almost sitting up and the weak hoarse voice has not improved. I've tried cutting caffein out of my diet and that hasn't helped. Nothing i've tried in four years has helped whatsoever. I've started to get a hopeless/desperate feeling come over me. The doctors i've seen have no real interest in ruling out the possible causes of this problem. The treat me like it's an frivolous annoyance when the exact opposite is true.
