I have an aweful sore throat... I can't talk except for whispering, and everytime I cough i feel it all the way down my esophogaus (sp?).

Does anyone have any methods of helping loss-of-voice viruses like mine?

thanks in advance.

A lot of times it just has to run its course, however hot tea can help with the soreness.

throat spray stuff helps. as do those dequacaine throat sweets.

drinking sweet fizzy stuff also helps sort your throat out, god knows why, but it's tried and tested amongst singers.

i've been drinking hot water for the past couple hours, it's helped, but very limited. You're most likely right that it just needs to run it's course, thanks.

I've been drinking some vernors (Ginger Ale) aswell, it's seemed to work. I never could use the throat sprays, the always numbed my tounge and just annoyed me. Thanks, all.

get a lemon, some honey and a cup of boiling water.

squeeze the lemon juice into the water and stir in some of the honey

helps take away that raw feeling when you swallow

Probably strep throat.. could be more severe, so if it doesn't go away in a few days, go see a doctor. I'm dealing with a terrible sore throat, too.


i sure hope it's not strep. that seems to be going around right now.

a friend told me she got it last week. mean stuff. if you think it could be strep, see a doctor. don't wait. that stuff can get real bad.

Gargle salt water, eat a spoon-full of honey (my personal favorite), drink some green tea.

sore throat, fever, general weakness, body aches. (not necessarily all symptoms will be present)

sometimes flu-like symptoms, but without the gastro-intestinal problems.

antibiotics will be a great help, but they take a while to work. so the sooner you know ....

you're scaring me. i had it years ago. it took about 1/2 day to go from what you described, until i couldn't walk, or even stand up without help.

maybe you shouldn't wait.

Yeah spicy foods work wonders

Also hot tea with honey really helps.

Strep throat is usually a really sore kinda throat, and usually you get white spots on your tonsils. The doc. will be able to tell if it is and they can take a throat culture.

Good luck with your sore throat!

oh, wow....

i'll give it a couple hours instead,

I mean, i usually fee tired during the day regardless of weather I'm sick, but i don't feel as exhausted as yesterday, yesterday I could barely type on the keyboard. Now, I can't talk, but just feel like I got 5 or 6 hours of sleep, not 10. I'll give it a couple hours. thanks for the advice.

A good way to remember how to spell esophagus is to think of it pronounced like eso-fag-us. Emphacense(sp?) on the fag.

And take some medicine or visit a doctor.
