Handling Of Sounds That Suddenly Disappear?
I am a 23 year old female. I want to ask. So 2 weeks before the day of Eid I was coughing and my voice was gone, then I checked it to the nearest health center, said the doctor who checked about my missing voice, he said it was because my vocal cords were infected. Finally medication is given. Now that my voice is still unable to return to normal, my voice is becoming stronger like I am bindeng because of the flu. Why did my voice change? Is it because there is still an infection in it? What should I do so my voice can be normal?
Hello Riska, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Changes in voice can be caused by several conditions such as vocal cord infection, inflammation of the vocal cords, inflammation of the larynx (laryngitis), impaired vocal cord function, gastric acid disease, or vocal cord nerve disorders. Why the possibility of these conditions can cause changes in your voice due to an abnormality in the vocal cords, it will definitely cause interference with movement, causing the sound produced by the vocal cords vibration is different than when the vocal cords are not experiencing abnormalities.
Because your complaint has been felt for 2 weeks without any improvement and also to find out more about what causes it, it is highly recommended that you further check with an ENT specialist. Your doctor will carry out further tests using a special instrument regarding the condition of the vocal cords and also the channel where the vocal cords are located. If necessary, your doctor may ask you to do some additional tests to help determine the cause. Next, the doctor will determine what therapy is good for your current condition.
For the time being it is recommended that you rest your voice by limiting speech, especially shouting. Also increase consumption of drinking water and also avoid foods that are spicy, sour, and also fried. Also make sure you get enough rest to help the healing process.
I hope this helps.
