How To Help A Sore Throat And Lost Voice
Sore throat for over 2 months, have lost voice completely several times. Seen dr twice with no significant relief. Have tried gargles and meds.
Had cold now sore throat healing and lost voice but the tickle is unbearable as tried medicine doesn't work so gargle brandy but need help no sleep?

I have lost voice, sore throat, sore right calf, yellow/green phlegm, cough. Any idea what i have?
Sounds like a virus: But your sore right calf does not fit into a viral uri. That may need to be looked at separately. Did you have trauma? Is the leg swollen? If it keeps up, see a doctor and get this looked at. ...Read more
