Lost Voice December 8th, Now February 16th

I'm just curious as to why I am still without a voice after more than two months? I am usually on the healthier side and just one day in December I woke up and I had basically lost my voice! I literally whispered for a whole month straight. Now I am able to push out what voice I do have, but it is horrible sounding and it hurts! Why is this?

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

Persistent loss of voice warrants evaluation by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician. Ask your family doctor for a referral or see the American Academy of Otolaryngology website (http://www.entnet.org/) to search for a physician by area.

Good luck!
