Avatar n tn However, 2 months later I barely have a voice and the sore throat is still there, I also have sensations running up my head from my ear to the top of my skull, nobody has given me a definitive reason for this.

Avatar n tn A day later I started to lose my voice and could not get rid of the sore throat. I have always had bouts of pharyngitis, though never with voice loss. That is what it feels like, pharyngitis. Could the badly decayed tooth be causing the pharyngitis + the voice loss.?

Avatar n tn I have had plates installed and removed and it could be part of the problem. Mine has a lot of scar tissue from the surgeries, it is actually constricting my throat and have problems swallowing. I have had it stertched out before but this last time it did not help. The doctors say it can take a year for my voice to come back. I'm not holding my breath on that, because of all the surgeries to my throat. If you come up with any answers let me know.

Avatar f tn My six year old came to me one night clutching his forehead and said he was feeling sick. I can't remember which came first but he vomited a few times and also had a sudden loss of voice/hoarseness. Then he was struggling to breath. I called 000 because he had difficulty breathing. It sounded restricted. By the time the ambulance arrived (15 mins later) his condition had improved. He wasn't vomiting any more and his breathing was better. His voice was still a little hoarse.
Avatar f tn Hi, transient loss of voice and hoarse voice are the typical symptoms of laryngitis. It is inflammation of the larynx (voice box). It is mainly caused by virus and treatment depends on type of virus affected. Even serological tests will help to identify the responsible pathogens. It can be treated with appropriate anti viral.

335728 tn?1331414412 t seem to be related to the loss of my voice as my voice has been hoarse for at least the last two months and the latest neck pain only lasted about 1 week. My voice did not return post neck pain. My gp has done blood tests for Thyroid and I had an Ultrasound yesterday. She feels that it is probably related only to my inhaled meds but I am having a lot of trouble with disabling fatigue as well as other symptoms.

Avatar n tn Hi, Throat cancer may present with cough, voice changes such as hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, ear pain, lump or sore that doesn't heal, and weight loss. Diagnostic tests such as endoscopy, laryngoscopy, other imaging studies like CT scan or MRI as well as biopsy, may need to be done for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
