Vocal Pain / Loss of Stamina

I've been singing professionally for five years, mostly Robert Plant, Steven Tyler type of stuff. My problem is strange because I can hit all my notes, however it's hard to get a crackle on any of them. There is an itchy constant but mild pain on the right side of my throat, I believe within the larynx. This itch refers forward to underneath my chin. Also my vocal stamina with singing and speaking has dropped quite a bit, and I get phlegmy and hoarse frequently. Any ideas?

There could be any number of explanations for your symptoms. See an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician for an evaluation of your larynx and appropriate treatment recommendations.
Best of luck to you!
