Laryngitis: Your symptoms are consistent with laryngitis. Most cases are viral and they usually get worse initially to the point where you might lose your voice completely, but eventually start getting better, with mild symptoms lingering past 1 week. If significant worsening, fever, problems breathing or severe pain seek immediate medical attention.
