So had a great weekend. Felt fine up until about 8 PM on Sunday and then I was achy, tired, and coughing. Woke up today with no voice. It is stronger than when I initially lost it but I still sound horrid. It tends to get better the longer I am quiet, however I have to answer phones as part of my job. That is very difficult to do right now.
I am contemplating taking time off before my co-worker leaves on maternity leave in November. I am now getting worried that this may result in having to take the stupid oral steroids to get the swelling in my voice box to go away. This happens at least twice a year and it is very frustrating. I am also concerned that the steroids might not work this time and I may be stuck on an extended leave of absence from work, which has happened before.
I am going to try and get into my doctor tomorrow but there are no guarantees.
