Viral infection: The most likely cause of your symptoms is a viral infection that starts as a sore throat and then proceeds to a common cold. However, if the throat soreness returns, worsens and persists, a throat culture would be indicated to check for a strep throat and , if positive an antibiotic would be prescribed. ...Read more

Vocal : Vocal changes persisting for two years deserves a proper laryngeal (voicebox) evaluation to make sure your vocal cords are moving properly and rule out any type of growth that may be interfering with their normal function.

My voice has been horse for about a month now. I have not been sick. My throat does not hurt, i don't have a cough or runny nose. What can cause this?

Chronic hoarseness: Good that u don't smoke. Do u use voice a lot (speaker, singer, coach, etc) where u have to shout or raise voice to be heard? May have nodules on vocal cords; remote possibility of laryngeal cancer (much more likely if u smoked) or hpv. Other possibilities: reflux, hypothyroid. See an ENT specialist who can evaluate larynx & obtain tests if needed. ...Read more

Virus: Loosing the voice typically means laryngitis and is caused by a virus around 90+% of the time. You should let your doctor take a look and make sure not strep pharyngitis. Sounds viral to me from afar but always best to talk to your doctor when under the weather. ...Read more

When I run my throat like swells and it hurts for me to talk and I get a raspy voice, just got over pharyngitis ?

Don't run: If you are recovering from pharyngitis and running is causing your throat to swell and to be painful when you talk, then you should probably avoid running until your throat has had some more time to heal. In general, when an activity is painful, it should be avoided, especially during a healing process. ...Read more

I was getting out of the shower when I tripped and hit my throat on the bath faucet. It is hard to swallow, my voice is hoarse, my chest also hurts.

Edema or swelling: Sorry to hear that. When muscle is traumatized it starts to be wrapped in fluid as the body begins repairs and that can cause hoarseness. Rest your neck muscles, and re-evaluate the next day. My suspicion is that you might form a bruise. Any swelling associated with that will eventually go down. If at any time you feel it is got worse and is affecting your breathing, seek urgent care. ...Read more

Get it evaluated: Though antibiotics aren't needed for respiratory viral infections, a sore throat may need immediate antibiotic therapy for streptococcal infections since it is contagious. Additionally, a healthcare professional can assess for other things such as postnasal drip, primary HIV infection, retropharyngeal abscess, and others, depending on the specifics of your case. ...Read more

Worrisome: If this is really a 3 week emerging problem the possibilities are worrisome. This could be simple, like vocal cord dysfunction, where they spasm unpredictably. It could also be an emerging issue deep in your airway. A consultation with an ENT should be arranged this week or as soon as you can get in. ...Read more
