Voice Loss

Voice loss commonly happens after a few days of hoarseness. However, voice loss can sometimes happen without hoarseness. For example, if laryngitis is caused by serious overstraining of the vocal cords.

A complete inability to speak doesn't have to occur for a symptom to be considered voice loss. Some people may find they can whisper. Doctors suggest managing voice loss or hoarseness by not speaking unless necessary, so the vocal cords have a chance to heal properly.3‘Laryngitis Diagnosis and Treatment.’ Mayo Clinic, Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research, 24 July 2020, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/laryngitis/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20374267
