Helpful Hints?

Sat Apr 5, 2014, 11:53 PM


So I lost my voice today and I'm basically looking for any helpful hints that anyone may now about curing it.  I can barely speak above a whisper and the more I use my voice the quieter I have become.  Basicly what happened is last Saturday night I felt fine but Sunday morning I woke up with a HORRIBLE cold (Stuffy/runny nose, the usually fun stuff) But the air in Arizona the past few days has been VERY dry.  Unusually dry and that tied in with a cold had made it so my throat started to get sore around Thursday.  By Friday I had started to notice my voice declining somewhat but as I am a Cashier and part of my job is to talk and up sale things all day I'm sure this also helped speed up my cold.  Not to mention Thursday night while closing the store my other closers had left before they were supposed too and I didn't get to leave until 10:20pm (Since everything has to be done before anyone is SUPPOSED TO LEAVE) on a already 8 and a half hour shift while sick which turned it into a little over 9 hour shift.  And today I had offically lost my voice.  My supervioer let me leave about 15 minutes early which I am grateful for since it was an 8 hour and 15 minute shift.  Anyway I'm just looking for advice so far I am doing the following to help my voice (And cold)



I have been drinking both Orange Juice (For Vitamin C) And Hot water with Lemon Juice and Honey (Since I was told by another co-worker that Lemon juice kills germs which can lead to a loss of voice and honey soothes the throat) I have also re-framed from trying to speak as that will only strain my voice further than it already is. (And I have the next 2 days off so that should help as well)  Any other remedies which be very much appreciated since I have never lost my voice before. So if you have any please comment them! :D

Aww... I'm sorry to hear that. I recommend hot lemonade and bed rest! (For just about anything, those are good for you. ^_^)

Well I don't have any lemonade but I have been drinking orange juice as well as eating honey and cinnamon (Someone told me once that helps curse sickness though I don't know if that's true it may be helping suppress it) so I have been doing something.
