Hoarse throat

02/22/2007

Question:

I`ve had a hoarse throat when I talk for about 2 months now or better.And extemely fatigued lately.I dont know if the 2 coinside but what could be causing my voice to be so raspy ? Thank you for your time.

Answer:

The reality of your situation is that you need to have your vocal cords and the rest of your voice box examined.  It is very unusual for someone to have hoarseness for 2 months.  There are many possible causes but talking about all of them really doesn't fix the problem.  You need to see an Ear, Nose and Throat specialist so that you can have a thorough examination of your throat and voice box.
