How To Help A Sore Throat And Lost Voice
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?
See doctor: First you need to find out what the problem is. Sinus infection after a viral infection is a possibility. However there may be other causes and the cold might have nothing to do with the problem at all. Gargling with Brandy will do you more harm than good since it irritates the throat further. It's time to see a doctor ...Read more

I'm due in 3 weeks & 4 days. Sore throat, lost voice, coughing, sometime coughing up mucus, sometimes coughing so much i see little white light dots?
Dr. can check throat: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat).

Don't force it: Avoid drying agents like sudafed. Don't try to force yourself to be heard. If you try to force it, you can strain your vocal cords and make the problem last a lot longer. So whisper, or right notes. Nod or shake your head solemnly, and people will think you are wise! The sages of history were known to not speak much. Or, as my ex said, if you need something done just "grunt and point !!!" ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi, I lost voice after taking cough syrup but am also having slow sporadic eyelid twitches, are these related? Have tight chest and sore throat.
No: Cough syrup does NOT cause the loss of vocal function. The symptoms, except the sporadic eyelid twitches, are most likely the result of a viral infection. These types of infections respond to conservative treatment and your immune system. If the symptoms persist for more than 3 weeks, consult your primary doctor. I can not emphasize enough not to take an antibiotic for these symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
