or Loss of Voice
Hoarseness or loss of
voice is usually a symptom of an upper respiratory infection
or a cold. However, persistent hoarseness or soreness requires
your doctors attention. Sometimes you can get so hoarse
that your voice is practically a whisper and can barely be heard.
However, this is quite different from the sudden inability to
try to say anything or a sudden inability to speak meaningful
sentences. The sudden inability to speak is a medical emergency,
much more serious than sudden severe hoarseness.
Have you suddenly lost the
ability to speak or suffered trauma to the head?
