Problems with my throat started in oct/nov 2008 and have been going back and forth to different doctors since then.
They first thought it was tonsilitis and then found a lump on my tonsils, they were scared it could be cancer so sent to hospital for checks.
It wasn't but was stillsore and would on occasions get worse and visibly inflamed.
Also was told it could be viral and last up to 6 months.
Went to doctors who thought it may be because I'm a teacher and sent me to speech therapy specialist.
I went to these sessions where the specialist felt around my neck and said it was clearly not right and seemed very strained. (this has been commented by others inthe past saying my voice is raspy/strained.
After a couple of sessions the specialist admitted it didn't seem to be helping much.
In some ways I gave up trying.
However over the last 3/4 days it's been getting worse.
On Thursday I tasted blood in my mouth after having a particularly troubling day with my throat. I spat in a tissue to see blood in the spit.
Today I lost my voice in the afternoon
