Throat infection loss of voice

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection loss of voice


Avatar f tn It can cause fungal infections, hoarseness, and temporary loss of voice. You may need to have a throat culture done to make sure you do not have a fungal infection. I am not saying that this is the only possible reason you have problems losing your voice, but I would put it at or close to the top of the list. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn It feels like something is wrapped around my throat restricking my throat. I also start to lose my voice late in the day, It seems like the more I talk the worse it gets. I seen an ear,nose and throat Dr. and he scoped my throat. He said that the plate from the fusion is pushing on my throat and has taken up the room that the vocal cords need and that they get inflamed. He feels the plate should be removed for it will cause more problem later.
Avatar n tn If you get a throat infection when your voice is crackly or larygitis (when you lose yur voice completely) do not attempt to try and talk. Just rest the vocal chords until they get better. Because you have not done singing for a while, you need to learn the warm up exercises before you start to sing. Start off by singing the scales in your comfortable voice range and build up, but only as far as is comfortable. Then do the scales downwards.

Avatar n tn Acute pharyngitis and laryngitis is the commonest cause of loss of voice due to infection and inflammation of the voice box and throat. This active infection, coughing, and clearing throat can often result in break in small blood vessels. Usually these heal with treatment of laryngitis which involves antibiotics, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic drugs along with maybe decongestants, warm saline gargles and throat elixirs.

Avatar f tn At the beginning of this month I believe I strained or damaged my voice from long hours of singing. My throat felt fatigued and I had tension in my neck. Hoarse voice etc etc. I also ended up with a popping/thumping feeling in my throat that happened every time I swallowed except when I was eating or drinking. The best way I can describe the feeling is try and imagine the sensation and pressure of cracking the knuckle of your middle finger and imagining that exact feeling in your throat.
Avatar m tn Hello, I've only just joined so please excuse me if this is in the wrong place/format/whatever, but I realyl do need some advice. Some basic background...I am a 20 year old Musical Theatre student with a passion for singing, I had been thoroughly enjoying university and was experiencing no problems whatsoever with my throat until last January in which I went for a singing audition.
Avatar f tn The constant feeling of a foreign body in the throat can be due to a throat infection or sometimes a tumour. The ENT specialist will have to examine your throat to determine the cause for your symptoms. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn None of your symptoms suggests herpes anyhow. Loss of voice, hand pimples, etc is something else. What you were reading about probably meant the herpes virus Shingles since this could affect the whole body on one side. It is from the chickenpox family which is a herpes virus. Let us know what sort of test they did to test for herpes. The loss of voice thing, I have no clue what thats all about. Sounds like you need an expert to look at u here.
Avatar m tn I think you asked if you should abstain from oral sex to take care of your voice. You should have oral sex in moderation. If you want to take care of your throat, then abstain from excess smoking and alcohol. 2. Throat Cancer from HPV does happen. I don't know much about the epidemiology of HPV inducing throat cancer. I did read a "Rising HPV-related cancers among white men [which] may reflect changing sexual practices." Whatever that means.
Avatar m tn I'm very anxious, I am a male, after receiving unprotected oral sex from a female sex worker: What is the likelihood of getting gonorrhea particularly if this female had throat/oral gonorrhea ?
Avatar f tn I just finished taking Azithromycin yesterday for what must of been a bacterial infection of my sinuses and lungs. It started as a cold. The cold went away but I was experiencing shortness of breath and post nasal drip that just wasn't subsiding. I went to two doctors. The first doctor prescribed a corticosteroid nasal spray (Omnaris). This helped a bit for the post nasal drip but wasn't addressing the shortness of breath or chronic cough that wasn't going away on its own.
Avatar m tn A couple of weeks ago I realized that i was having trouble hitting higher pitches when I was talking. It also feels like theirs something in my throat. I cant sing anymore except in a lower tone without going up. I find my self running short on breath as I talk at times. Im not in pain, just curious about whats going one.
Avatar m tn Your esophagus cannot be damaged by clearing your throat. Your larynx (voice box) could be. Make sure you clear it gently, also drink plenty of water.
Avatar f tn Hello all, About two weeks ago I got a sinus infectation. I took antibotics for it but on the second day of it I lost my voice. I couldn't talk at all. For 7 days I had no voice, they put me on steroids, and cough meds. Then I got it back, but was told not to talk to much. This is hard at my job because I am management. So, my voice has gone away agian. I also have a right lymph node that hurts. I want to know if anyone has any suggestions for what I can do to get my voice back.
Avatar m tn White tongue (still apparent right now) Throat sensitivity / voice change lasted more than two weeks - most severe migraine symptoms / sinus symptoms went away on their own, as well as the severity of the loss of sensation. Upon exertion, the right side of my head begins to ache. Throat clearing and dizziness still apparent, not as bad.
Avatar n tn Burning sensation in the neck and upper chest raises the suspicion of gastric reflux or GERD. The regurgitation of acid in the oesophagus and throat can cause burning pain in upper chest and neck and hoarse voice. Plaese make sure you eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and eat your dinner 2 hrs before bedtime. A mild OTC antacid before meals will also help you. At the same time pain due to heart attack should also be excluded. Do you have any shortness of breath?

Avatar n tn Is it possible for a hiatial hernia to cause problems with my throat and voice. My symptoms are loss of voice when I talk for a little while---I can no longer sing---I can't get any range at all----my voice has grown so low that when I answer the phone people think its my husband answering. If you have any ideas I'd certainly appreciate it. Thank you very much.
Avatar n tn Have Hashi's, antibodies always very high even inspite 9 years of synthroid and then mix of t4+t3 (v expensive), followed by armour (headache), and now on plain generic t4 again. Hair loss and short term memory issues really bad right now, plus have very 'frog stuck in the throat' feeling whenever I speak, have to clear my throat repeatedly, especially after staying quiet for a while. Last TSH was 1.8, free t4 and free t3 in range.
Avatar n tn I am glad that you are on an antibiotic , as allergens & irritants can set the perfect stage for an infection that is bacterial to take hold. You said that you have had a horrible chest infection & are constantly clearing your throat? When an infection sets into your sinuses , the postnasal drip from that can make a person feel like there is thick mucus sort of "stuck' in the throat area.
Avatar m tn This can be caused by bacterial or viral infections, mucus coating due to post nasal drip, irritation of the throat and voice box by irritants. Irritants can be anything from dust, smoke, etc. Damage can also be caused if you suffer from acid reflux. You may have damage to the vocal chords by over use, or by straining the vocal chords. If you do sing, then do make sure you do vocal warm ups. The voice box needs to be looked after like any other part of your body.
