I want to ask, my throat doesn’t hurt, but how come my voice has disappeared so it’s been about 2 weeks my voice hasn’t improved, why huh? Thank you 🙏😇
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Sound production is regulated primarily by the voice box located in the larynx. A voice that is shrunken, hoarse, until completely lost usually occurs in connection with disorders of the larynx (laryngitis), for example due to the following reasons:
Inhalation of smoke or harmful chemicals that are irritating to the respiratory tract Alcoholism Excessive screaming Smoking Infection, often due to bacteria or viruses Benign or malignant tumors of the larynx, for example polyps, cysts, nodules, vocal cord paralysis, for example from stroke, injury, etc. It could also be that the sound production disorders as you experience occur due to other causes, for example chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities), chronic tonsillopharyngitis (inflammation of the throat and tonsils), stomach acid reflux, panic attacks, excessive anxiety disorders, and so on.
Our advice, if your complaint has been going on for a long time, which is more than 3 days, and it doesn't get better, you should check with an ENT specialist. With a thorough evaluation, or perhaps also assisted by supporting tests, such as x-rays and endoscopy, doctors generally can find out the exact trigger of your complaint, as well as the right way to deal with it.
In the meantime, it is best not to talk too much and scream too much. Increase the humidity in your throat and larynx area, namely by consuming more warm water, not breathing through your mouth, using an air humidifier to moisten the air where you live, gargling more with a salt solution, and not whispering frequently. Do not forget, avoid the habit of smoking, consuming alcohol, and consuming excessively spicy and oily foods. Finally, get enough sleep and consume more fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C.
Hope it helps ..
