It’s been over 5 months now, and I still can’t speak like normal. In February I came down with what I thought was Laryngitis. I couldn’t talk normally or not at all… and I couldn’t raise my voice, yell, or even talk loudly. I can’t yell, sing, or talk loudly to this day. I’m thinking it may have started out as Laryngitis but changed to something much worse. Since I got the problem in the middle of the High School soccer season, I think I may have done some real physical damage…. by trying to coach through it. Anyone have thoughts on this?
My doctor told me to buy Prilosec OTC because he thinks I have GERD, or Gastro Esophagal Reflux Disorder… or something like that. In other words, I have acid reflux while I sleep. I’ve been on this stuff for over 2 weeks and I’ve yet to see a real big improvement. It’s weird, annoying, and interesting all at the same time. One thing is for sure… I am TIRED of it. I can’t even talk to people that are in the other room without having to get up… lame.
