On New Years day I went for a 30 mile cycling training ride. I ride all the time and this was nothing unusall. That afternoon I felt terrible, like flu. I had a mild cough and developed hoarness in my voice. 5 days later I saw the Doctor and took antibiotics. I felt lousy for 3 weeks then it gradually cleared. Alergies he said. Over 4 months later I feel allright but my voice is still hoarse. I can't yell or scream. (need that with dogs and kids) I use to play rock n roll in my youth and had a great voice, and did until Jan 1 2007. I can barely sing at all now and have no range. It is such a struggle to sing anything but very, very low notes.
My research says that I contracted a virus and perhaps it screwed up my vocal cord nerves. I have an appointment with an ENT on May 4th (3 weeks away). I would love to hear that this will go away or is treatable.
