Loss of Voice

One week ago I had an incident of acid reflux during the middle of the night. For three days I had a very sore throat and swollen glands.   After that I lost my voice.   I am now without a voice for five days  (no sore throat).   Will it come back if I rest it?  Thank you.

Melissa Kim, M.S., CCC-SLP replies... 

Your voice may certainly improve with rest, but five days without any voice warrants an evaluation by an Ear, Nose and Throat physician.
Best of luck to you!
