maybe you're just getting a cold...
cuz when I sing my throat hurts only when I'm having a cold.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

Yeh the SICK! bit sounds a bit stupid.

Im a vocalist myself, and from what Ive been taught and experienced myself, you may not have warmed up or warmed down properly. As well like was said, it could be just a cold, or you could be pushing yourself to sing uncomfortable notes to early on and your not quite warmed up for them yet
