I am 15 and I care a lot about my health and always try staying healthy. But 3 days ago I woke up with this weird feeling in my throat. It felt very unusual but I decided to leave it alone and thought it would leave by the next day. The next day when I woke up and tried to speak my voice did not sound right and my throat felt a bit clogged. I had a hoarse throat and at the moment I still have it. I'm not sure what the cause was since I haven't been sick for months. So my question is what does it seem like I have and what can I cure it with? I really need help because I'm worried.

The only way to determine the cause of your symptoms is to be evaluated by an Ear, Nose and Throat physician. Ask your primary care physician for a referral or visit the American Academy of Otolaryngology website at http://www.entnet.org/ to search for a specialist.
