Throat infection loss of voice

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection loss of voice


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 It's possible that the problem with your voice is due to infection/inflammation of the nerves to the larynx (voice box). If the laryngeal nerves are weakened due to injury or infection, you may have weak voice or hoarseness. See this: I think you should go back to the physician, and let him know that his recommended treatment, Mucinex, is not helping you. If you don't tell him, he'll never know.
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 f tn Hello, The few common causes of loss of voice and hoarseness are laryngitis, laryngopharyngeal reflux disease, benign vocal cord lesions, vocal cord paralysis etc.Serious but rare causes are laryngeal cancers.If it is laryngitis caused by a viral infection humidified steam and adequate fluid intake will be helpful.Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. This is merely an advice and not a substitute for clinical examination.

Avatar f tn I suspect that your drinking the “ginger juice with kalamansi” was not a cause of your loss of voice. That is more likely to be caused by whatever caused your cough in the first place, infection or other. My advice is that, if your cough is worse or your voice has not returned or you are having any trouble breathing, that you be seen at a medical facility for examination of your throat and vocal cords.
Avatar m tn By chance, I had the same problem as you, once again, last week, after a bout of flu, including the loss of voice. For research purposes, I got a neti pot to see if it would work as well as The Sinus Flush. It provided some relief, but seemed to do a half-a*sed job, or more precisely, a half-sinus job, not reaching the upper part of my sinuses where my infection was. Of course, results may vary.
Avatar n tn One more thing, my daughter has asthma, but she doesn't have to have a breathing treatment everyday. When she has an episode and we give her a breathing treatment, she gets hoarse, too. If the hoarsness doesn't go away after the treatment is complete, you might ask your doctor if your asthma medication could be making you hoarse. I believe the package insert says to rinse the mouth with water after pulmicort treatment. Have you tried that?
1044813 tn?1370498006 Woke up this morning with a loss of my voice and severe pain in my throat. Told work that I will be late and went to a walk-in clinic. I was diagnosed with Strep Throat (or a strep-like throat infection) and complete laryngitis. I was given Amoxicillian (tid) and a numbing mouthwash to gargle with (qid).
Avatar f tn In the 1980s I slowly grew a thyroid cyst which was not detected for quite a time, until I started seeing a bulge on the left side of my neck accompanied by a feeling of pressure in my esophagus and a significant loss of a whole octave of my upper soprano singing range. The presence of a tumor was confirmed by ultrasound and surgery was scheduled in 1986.
Avatar n tn They are now looking at non-STD possibilities. My wife did get a sore throat (loss of voice, but no real pain per se), however, with minimal other cold/flu symptoms, but this too could just be coincidental (my daughter had the sore throat the week previous). I will still watch to see if it gets worse, but it's getting harder and harder to connect the dots between those two events. Thanks for everyone's contribution -- it's been very helpful.
Avatar n tn Loss of voice along with sore throat can be due to laryngitis (inflammation of the voice box), acidity with GERD causing inflammation of the voice box, viral infection or bacterial one. Hence it is important to find the cause. Consult an ENT. Meanwhile do warm saline gargles, drink warm lemonade, herbal tea and clear soups. See if this helps. Hope this helps. Do let me know if there is any thing else and keep me posted. Take care!
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 n tn About three weeks ago I came down with cold symptons such as blocked nose, irritated throat with a productive cough, and loss of voice. My voice cleared up within a week, my blocked nose within a week and a half, and my productive cough persisted (mainly in the mornigs, however intermittently throughout the day). Besides the cough, everything had gone away until about 3-4 days ago when I started losing my voice again, my cough became worse, and I now have a blocked nose again.
Avatar n tn My friend has traumatic brain injury although he is a high funtioning adult at the age of 44 despite his extreme short-term memory loss. After receiving a couple of doses of the antibiotic Keflex to treat a skin infection (about two weeks ago)- he couldn't speak for about an hour or so. We stopped treating him with Keflex but even so ever since then his voice loss has been intermittent and comes and gos from time to time.
Avatar m tn Continual throat clearing Chronic throat irritation Chronic cough Hoarseness Excessive phlegm the throat Dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) Constant sensation of something in the throat Swallowed food comes back up Post nasal drainage Weak voice Cracking voice Blockage of the breathing passage Spasm of the larynx (voice box) Wheezing Heartburn This condition is a result of both UES and LES not working correctly.
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 n tn I took last year off of teaching because I couldn't have a conversation without losing my voice. I started my new teaching job this week and I find my self afraid to speak. The thing is, I wake up feeling fine. I feel good every other way, but when I start talking, my voice gets hoarse or hurts, my throat gets sore, and my lungs are irritated (almost itchy like they have a rash). But when I go to bed, I wake up feeling okay. I do not get heartburn but a few times a year.
Avatar m tn difficulty swallowing; ear pain; lump or sore that doesn't heal; sore throat and weight loss. Throat irritation alone may be attributed to a variety of issues such as infection, inflammation, and even allergy. For proper evaluation, it is best that you have this checked by your ENT doctor. Take care and do keep us posted.
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 in fact, one of the side effects of ativan is loss of coordination! did he lose his coordination before or after being place on ativan?
357713 tn?1199773985 I have had everything you mentioned, except for loss of voice. Always the felling of something in my throat. Have had the thyroid test ,CT scan and everything else you mentioned. Even had an endoscopy. They found nothing wrong with me. I do the saline rinse about every two to three days helps for a while. If you find any solution. Please post.
1939607 tn?1324292900 Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. Recurrent tonsillitis is an indication for tonsillectomy, as the tonsils may harbor the infection which keeps flaring up, or they may develop new infections. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn BUT, you have to be very careful of reading the symptoms of something and then diagnosing yourself. My sore throat has caused my weight loss because I couldn't eat solid food. It just hurt too much. My lymph glands were only swollen in my throat. My fatigue is very obvious because of being on a liquid diet for so long. Just be careful with looking at only symptoms.
604197 tn?1292308636 I was 43 when my accident occurred. I will probably not ever be the same again. I suffer from dizziness and loss of balance, loss of coordination and a tremor in my right hand whenever I try to write, eat or do anything that involves fine motor skills. But I still see small improvements after 4 yrs. so don't ever give up. Its a long road to recovery and I'm much better off than I was at first.
Avatar n tn 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. AN u/s about 5 years ago had showed graininess but no nodules, does this full throat feeling indicate anything? I also had the shooting throat pains off and on a couple months ago but not recently.
192055 tn?1263559137 I did have gerd so the drainage that did run down the back of my throat got stuck in my throat where the acid reflux cause swelling and inflammation and damage! Prettynsoon without clearing the throat I start to feel like my neck is puffing! Sonhacking at different pitches and speed clears different parts. I've done a regimen of salt water gargles, netipot nasal rinses(excellent) ibuprofen for swelling' scrip for omeprazole for acid reflux and occasionally decongestant! Sometimes helps!
Avatar m tn I have recently quit. For the past two weeks I have had a recurring soreness in my lower throat. No coughing. About four days ago, I began experiencing a lump-like sensation inside my throat on the lower right that is mainly felt when swallowing. It feels about pill sized and the sensation comes and goes to the point where it is sometimes barely noticeable. Last night I started feeling a small swollen area on the right side of my neck where the thyroid is located.
Avatar m tn I just slept using it, it feels a bit tight when using it, when I woke up a feel I lost a very tiny amount of hearing. It's kinda like my voice is slightly lower in volume when I talk. Can earplugs for sleeping (e.g., Mack's Earplugs) actually cause hearing loss?
Avatar f tn Audiogram was classic Meniere's audiogram with 30 dB loss across the lower 3 frequencies. Went on a low sodium diet of 1500 mg/day. Hearing came back and went away again sporadically. When listening to dial tone on phone, sounds tinny and with static. Listening to radio also sounds tinny, but no static. Am taking hydrochlorthiazide. By the time I went to bed yesterday, I had a sudden hearing loss in my RIGHT ear--certainly felt like another 30 dB loss ! ! Left ear is still impaired.
