  • When Celine Dion lost her voice from singing and she needed to go back on tour she tried not talking for dayyyyy before her big shows and it worked. I think you need some tea and honey and a good nights rest:)

  • I know a bunch of remedies but the most brutal and therefore most effective is to grab a cotton swab and dip it in tequila and someone swab your throat with it , another one try to rinse your throat with baking soda and water that has returned my voice for like an hour, the tequila in the other hand numbs my throat so much that I can talk normally again for the rest of the day.

  • You and me both! I've been without my voice for a week now and sick for nearly two..I'm so fed up! I can't sing because of it, and that depresses me most. Hmpf.

  • I think you just have to wait it out. Drink tea with a lot of honey.

  • Both of my hands and wrists hurt because of it. All I am doing is trying to not talk at alland write what I need to say.
