Voice Loss

I had some sinus drainage which resulted in the complete loss of my voice. My doctor put me on steroids because my vocal chords were inflamed and swollen. It did not help. I went to an ENT. He found no abnormalities or paralysis. It has been 21 days that I've been silent. I'm not a smoker or a screamer. I am however a teacher. Why now? Thank you!

There are any number of reasons why someone might experience voice change - or even voice loss - but recommendations for treatment depend on an accurate diagnosis! What did your ENT feel was the cause of your voice difficulties?
