A few days ago, while trying to belt out some higher notes, I hurt my voice. My voice
is hoarse, and in the hollow of my throat
, right between my collar bones, there is a burning sensation. My voice cracks occasionally, and I noticed a loss of one octave spanning across the past five months, and it gets tired really easily. I have put myself on vocal rest, and have been keeping the talking to a minimum. I also noticed that when I sing, my larynx goes up really high. What could this be?
