    Hope you feel better soon,

    Try some Lemon juice in Hot water with some honey and ginger.

    It works for me.

    Wishing you well and Happy New Year.

    Absolute rule--do not even try to talk. Make other people talk for you. Yes, it gets interesting when your spouse attempts to interpret your gestures, especially when the pharmacist starts asking complicated questions such as "when is her birthday?" Hope you're good at charades. Seriously, your voice will recover a lot quicker if you don't try. If you need to yell at family, pinch their ears instead, it works wonders. [​IMG]

    Gargle with lukewarm saltwater. Drink tea with honey. Eat something garlicky, like plain chicken broth with a garlic clove smashed up in it. Rest. If your throat hurts super bad, Chloraseptic spray helps numb it, but don't get tempted to hose your throat down and talk.
