Throat infection lost voice

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection lost voice


Avatar f tn Every winter I lose my voice. My throat doesn't get sore anything but it gets real dry. It almost feels like, and this is gonna sound gross but I don't know how else to describe it, there is hardened snot in my throat. When I eat something or drink something warm it kind of breaks up a little and I can cough some of it up but it's not phlegm. It's like a real hardened snot kind if like the consistency of a just moistened corn flake. I know that's gross but would could be causing this?
Avatar f tn which is usually prescribed for the typical signs and symptoms of a throat infection.....IF your lost voice and difficulty swallowing was due to MS, you wouldn't have signs of a throat infection and require antibiotics. It's a huge anxiety leap to already be worrying or even thinging about a feeding tube..... Cheers..........
Avatar n tn In the last few days, however, he seems to have lost his voice. It's not completely gone, and once he tries to meow a couple times he can get a light, scratchy meow out. He's also dry heaving a little. I rubbed around on his throat and it didn't cause him to cough, and I didn't feel anything abnormal. He is otherwise in good spirits - he's eating, seems happy (for a cat that's being isolated in a bedroom), he's energetic enough to play once in a while, attentive, hydrated, and so on.
Avatar m tn I've had the same problem as the first person (and some of the others) since about 2010 when I was in the hospital for two days for walking pneumonia and a larynx infection that created my horse voice. Sometimes my voice is fine, and other times, people can hardly make out what I am saying. This is a big problem because I'm a writer, and give frequent readings of my work and can never count on when my voice will be all right.
185634 tn?1257074739 Okay, I know normally this isn't something one would get excited over - but, my voice is stronger today than it has been since I had surgery!!! It still crackles a little like an adolescent boy when I try to hit high notes, but it's stronger. I went to church today, and was a little down because I really do enjoy singing in church. I tried as best I could, but it was pretty soft and not a lot of tone. A few hours later, I noticed that my voice is stronger.
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 Meanwhile, I just went for my 6 month check up with my Lung doctor and they said I have really bad thrush in my mouth, throat, voice and everything. So bad in fact, they put me on Dyflucan 2 pills on day 1 and then 1 pill a day for 10 more days and they said then my voice should get better. I am lost and I am just so frustrated but at the same time, I don't know if I want the answer.
Avatar m tn Tired Eyes - I felt a pressure behind the eyes Blocked Nose - Nose always feel congested, but the blockage shifts from side to side White tongue - Always Furry Dry Throat (and mouth to a certain extent, at the bottom of the throat) Voice Deeper - Voice sounds deeper and croakier I was subsequently diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and received appropriate medication. I also had severe stomach acid which came under control once my thyroid was adequately medicated.
Avatar n tn I have constant drainage down the back of my throat, ever since I had Rhinoplasty. I have also developed polyps on my voice box and almost lost my voice 6 months after surgery. I have had surgery and got the polyps removed, but he said if we can't control the drainage, they will come right back. I get tired all the time and have all sorts of medications and nose sprays, but I don't like to use them because they make me more tired. I am beginning to think it might be processed food.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms could be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause irritation in the throat. It can lead to throat congestion. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy. It could be sinusitis, if it is accompanied by nasal stuffiness and facial pain or pressure. This can also cause the altered smell. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment.
Avatar f tn I've been coughing my lungs up which is of course causing cramps just about every time I cough and popping my left hip out of place regularly but now my throat is raw and I completely lost my voice. I feel less sick today except my throat feels like it's on fire. What will help my throat? I really hate taking medicine, especially while pregnant, and now I just need to soothe my throat and hopefully get my voice back instead of get rid of symptoms. Any advice? Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn I'm a 15 year old girl. I have lost my voice 4 times in the last 6 months the first time I lost it for a week the second time 12 day, the third time 24 days and the forth time I lost it for just over a week. I have no idea what is causing it. I also have a very bad cough at the moment and I am concerned that it may all be linked ! I have been to the doctors and had a camera down my throat but there was nothing physically wrong with my vocal cords. Do you know what could be causing it ??
Avatar m tn Began after an upper airway infection last spring. Constantly sore throat, lost of burning. Started to have pain while singing, and swallowing. Tried antibiotics and allergy medicin with little or no help. Now after a year my tounge shows atrophy and fasicuisations. Been to ENT´s, neuros, gastro, all tests comes back normal. The doctors susspected ALS, but it seems pretty sure to be ruled out. Also other neurological conditions seems ruled out. (ms, stroke, ect.
773755 tn?1328123377 Oh my!! I am experiencing that now, don't have a cold or anything I do have fibromyalgia, my doctor told me is a virus that in 10 days it will be okay. But I don't see any changes. I don't have a fever or mucus or anything. I do feel frustrated.
Avatar n tn How is the Air in the area you live in, I live in LA and lost my voice recently from the smoke from some fires, Check these things out and good luck.
Avatar f tn The day after this happened I began to have swollen throat glands and lost my voice. I also noticed about 3 or four very small, painless, non-itchy bumps around my vagina. It is currently two weeks after the incidence and one of the bumps is still there on the outside of my vaginal lip. I am very nervous that this is herpes. It hasnt hurt or caused me any problems other than noticing them. I have a drs appointment in two weeks but I was just wondering if this sounded like herpes?
Avatar n tn 5-3 weeks later I lost my voice. My voice came back completely within a few days. About 6 days ago I noticed my glands and lymph nodes in my throat becoming swollen and tender. I didn't give much thought to it because I was also/still am extremely congested as well. I went to the doctor and she noted the extreme degree to which my lymph nodes were swollen (you could see certain ones popping out of my neck) and prescribed me an oral antibiotic (Amox/ Pot Clav 875) which I took as directed.
Avatar f tn He refuses a biopsy because my thyroid is fine according to the uptake. I have pain in my neck all the time now, I have a hoarse voice, my throat hurts and I have no signs of infection, pain in my jaw and pain in my ear, my hair loss is massive. I am at a loss for what to do. Any advice is appreciated. Cancer runs like crazy in my family and this doctor is new to me. I have gained a lot of weight as well and my throat itches often.
Avatar n tn By the end of the day she has just about lost her voice. She complains of something draining down the back of her throat she is at the end of her rope with this problem she is 35 years old and has tried many otc as well as prescription allergy medications do you think you can help me with this problem we are desperate she is going to a doctor but the wait is longer than we can stand.
Avatar f tn As you have been on steroid inhalers, your symptoms could be due to fungal infection in the throat. This causes white patches in the throat and consequent pain. Repeated salt water gargles will help. Mix one teaspoon of salt in 1 cup of warm water and gargle. If your symptoms worsen consult your doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn #1 aprox 1 week slightly soar throat now (3weeks after I have almost lost my voice) #2 after 2 weeks exactly- rash on my arms back and front but nothing on my face and only few dots on neck (No discoloured areas just little itchy spots) its now gone (after 1 week) #3 2,5 weeks- fever with flu symptoms and throat pain getting worse (fever gone after 1-2 days) #4 3.5 weeks- cough (bad one) and still very soar throat (feels swollen) neck gland slightly bigger on right side...
Avatar n tn I dont know if this has anything to do with sinusitis, but I couldn't find a more applicable topic. I had a bad cold/ sore throat thing about a month ago- lost my voice, ran a fever the whole thing. Never went to the doctor but it eventually went away though the cough persisted for a week or so. but since the rest of the symptoms went away I have been having a strange sore throat. Most of the time it feels okay, but a little weird when I swallow.
Avatar f tn Sometimes get earache and I have lost my voice once during this time, then hey presto it all goes away only to return several days later. During this time when throat is sore I have low energy levels. I plan to go do doctors next week but can any one offer me advise in the interim.
Avatar f tn So they put me on Prednisone 25mg three times a day at the same time. I finished those off and lost my voice completely and the lump in my throat never changed. So they then put me on Amoxicillin 500mg three times a day. I finished those off, the lump is still there. They sent me for blood work. I apparently have anemia. So they sent me for another set to see if I was allergic to any foods or what not for the anemia. The doctor I am seeing is sending me to do a Barium Swallow.
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. And it is possible not to have typical gerd/acid reflux symptoms.
Avatar m tn I'd stay away from hot tubs for awhile too since if this is a fungal infection, they can just cause a worsening of the fungal infection as well as give you new infections too. definitely if you have THAT sort of stamina, you need to be using lube both on the inside and the outside of the condom when you use it. Consider stopping and replacing the condom with a new one periodically during the sex act too.
Avatar m tn I now have practically lost my voice. I have read so much about the rarity of getting HSV-2 orally and how most people have HSV-1 already and didn't know that I think I am worrying a little too much about it.
Avatar f tn Slight fever, coughing, lots of congestion and a very sore throat. After more than a week I went to the doctor since I had lost my voice completely and the pain in my throat was not improving. He diagnosed me with sinusitis, said I had a tonsillary cyst and gave me Levaquin 500 mg, Tussi Caps and Lodrane. It took 5 days of treatment before I had any relief. Then, 48 hours after completing the treatment, I became sick again with identical symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have had a sore throat, which causes my voice to 'catch', for about 5 weeks. Some days it is almost none existent, others it feels quite raw. I don't have an elevated temperature although on one occasion last week, for no apparent reason, I broke out in a profuse sweat - I was soaked - but recovered within minutes with a drink of water. I have a slight sensation of cattarh in the back of my throat but not so much as to make me cough, just enough to cause throat clearance every hour or so.
