If I sing with the whistle register too much can it damage my voice?

Otherwise, using whistle register can damage the false vocal folds (used to produce whistle register) by causing nodules. Improper technique can also negatively affect your normal upper register. I'd advise training with a vocal teacher well versed in this technique. ...Read more

Be careful: As soon as possible, you will need to see an ENT doctor who has a strong interest in voice. Ent needs to visualize your vocal cords to determine if there are any nodules or lesions that may be affecting the quality of your voice. It is possible you could make your singing and talking voice worse if you don't seek a medical opinion 1st. If it is simple laryngitis, there are ways to get you ready. ...Read more

Is my singing voice going to be okay? Do I have a vocal nodule or just need more rest? I love to sing and lately I have really been using my singing voice more frequently. Last week i was singing rolling in the deep by adele and all the sudden, on the lou

Sudden : Sudden losses of the voice may be due to a hematoma (a collection of blood) in or on the vocal cord. Small blood vessels can rupture from vocal abuse like yelling, singing, coughing, etc. Treatment is controversial. Some feel that small hematomas can be treated with voice rest. Others feels that they lead to scarring of the cord or growths called polyps and they should be managed surgically. Other causes of voice loss and hoarseness include muscle tension dysphonia (the muscles around the larynx are over stimulated and the muscles are tense) and vocal nodules (callus-like growths on the cords). If your voice does not improve, then you should be seen by an otolaryngologist (ent). ...Read more
