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.
Avatar f tn 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.
1452967 tn?1285110216 I have lost my voice 4 times in a month. I went to my dr and they said it was laryngitis and to rest and it will go away. I got my voice back but kept losing it. the longest i have had my voice is a week. I went to Boston ENT. They did a scope up my nose down my throat. said it looked fine and to get a appt. with larangology. He uped my protonix. But i have not had stomach issues it is under control. He also said it could be anxiety, but i have had that all my life and never lost my voice.
Avatar n tn ve slowly developed a real rasp to my voice. I always have to clear my throat before speaking (literally every single time) and it takes a lot of effort for me to talk above a very quiet volume. It seems to be getting worse rather than better, and it's made me seem almost shy since it takes so much effort to talk these days that most of the time I just... don't.
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 m tn Friday, felt a little better, still had post nasal drip, lost my voice that night. Woke up Saturday, Sore throat, had a horrendous sinus infection and felt like garbage. I started taking Sulfamethoxazole anti biotic that I had left over from a previous sinus infection and using my nasal rinse bottle. That improved immediately Sunday, but I still had a scratchy throat and a terrible horse voice. Today, still have a horse voice, improved a bit, but tonight my eye started to sting real bad.
Avatar f tn I had to have 2 separate surgeries because of inconclusive pathology after the right side of the thyroid and tumor were removed. Both surgeries went well and I sailed thru with little pain, but I have lost my voice after this 2nd surgery. I read the posts about hoarseness, but I feel I have completely lost my voice. I can't talk on the phone and have to get people to look at me before talking to them.
Avatar f tn You just posted that your GP gave you "antibiotics" 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 f tn Hai, I have some disturbance in my throat some years so i lost my voice actually i love my voice i lost it so i cant but i dont consult any doctors so please help me . i feel its like a ball rolling in mid my throat so i request you to help me please thankyou.
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.
Avatar n tn I had 3 different tubes down my throat after that for 5 days. My voice was also almost totally gone and I sounded like my voice was always cracking. Sometimes you could barely hear me. Even today, 2 years later, my voice comes and goes. My Dr. told me it was nothing to worry about. My vocal cords were just irritated by everything they did and my voice would come back. It is 98% better now than it was 2 years ago and I had alot of things down my throat.
Avatar n tn Do voice problems occur intermittently when you have an active infection, or constantly with greater voice quality problems when active infections occur? 9. What asthma medication do you take? How long? Is there myopathy (side effects) in the larynx from this? From these questions, a plan of action might be 1. See someone, a voice pathologist, in a good, sound medical center 2. See a laryngologist to explore condition, function and recommendations to treat the larynx 3.
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 m tn It hurt to swallow and by the next weekend I had lost my voice, looked like a typical upper respiratory infection but I read that those are the early signs of HIV infection. Anyway, it's a little over 3 weeks since then, I got my voice back a while ago but the soreness is lingering a bit and for the past couple days I have had a weird feeling in my throat accompanied by some postnasal drip. I didn't feel the needle but any chance the urban myth may have been true in this instance.
Avatar n tn 49 yr old woman with bowel disorder (chronic bile salts diarrhea with malabsorption 15-30x a day) and a seizure disorder from head injury. Taking 60 mg of phenobarbital 3x a day and within a day of increased doseage lost my voice & have an incredibly sore throat. No signs of illness otherwise. Trouble swallowing or eating and have lost 10 lbs so far. PC Dr sent me for blood work that all came back normal but throat pain and voice get worse every single day.
Avatar n tn I got a cat from a shelter a couple weeks ago that came home with an upper respiratory infection. He's been treated, still on antibiotics but the congestion is *mostly* gone (I've only heard him sneeze once in the last 24 hours, but still has to audibly huff to smell things). 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.
Avatar m tn Ok so now everything is gone, but i still have a cough and now i think i damaged my throat because blood comes out every time i cough hard and now i cant even say two words for the past 3 days. I feel like i lost my voice and i am afraid that i wont be able to talk normal again... i dont have insurance so i asked the this question online... My question is how do i heal the "broken cappilaries from my throat that makes it bleed, and second is there a way to get my voice back???

Avatar n tn For several months I'll be fine and then all the sudden the thick mucous and the sinus infection like symptons occur. There's no pattern. It could be allergy season or not allergy season. I eat the same basic foods and drink the same drinks(milketc) all the time and am just fine then all the sudden out of nowhere will have the thick continuous mucous and will coat my vocal cords causing me to lose my singing voice or even my speaking.
Avatar m tn Is post nasal drainage a sign of throat cancer? 5: Does the weight loss, that happened over a 2 week period look concerning? Thank you for your insight!
Avatar m tn A week and a half ago, I caught a cold. after about 3-4 days, I'd lost my voice and at its current state, my voice is now back for the most part, but my throat is still a little scratchy. This is probably expected. Anyway, I was convinced that I was getting better, until... A couple of days ago, I started feeling pain in my neck, this is on the right side, right where I can feel myself swallow.
Avatar n tn I am a DJ in a night club a month ago i was in very loud music for 15 hours talking over the music. I lost my voice for about 3 days after that. My voice has came back but for a month i have a sore throat. No swollen glands or anything like that. Feels like a tear in my throat. Any time i talk now for any period of time it gets worse.
