I sustained a vocal injury almost 2 years ago. I have been going to vocal therapy, but it still has not healed. I felt a pop when this occurred, much like the one I felt years ago when I tore the subscapularis tendon in my shoulder. The pain is better on speaking, but it comes back if I talk too long. It also returns when singing ascending passages or when singing too long. It seems localized on the right side of my throat, near the tendon of the omohyoid, or in the center of my throat, between the 2 clavicles. I am going to my doctor again tomorrow to ask him to do an MRI to see what is happening. He says he has never heard of anyone having a tear. Any thoughts or advice?
