voice rest my doctor also advised. if i keep quite than what to teach at school, my mother also told ginger and honey. i discovered this new techenique. it is simple but need to be implemented. tie one face mask while travelling. its the dust which sits on the voice box and cause irritation. on reaching the school gargle with clean water. keep drinking water in between class. try avoiding teaching after afternoon. its simple and dont have to take the ginger or garlic.

ENT Specialist Dr. Sanjay Kumar's  Response
Contact a Speech Language Pathologist.They will give voice therapy and teach vocal hygiene technique.As all investigation are normal your wife is an ideal candidate for voice therapy for her dysphonia.

Few tips for vocal hygiene are:

Limit your intake of drinks that include alcohol or caffeine. These act as diuretics (substances that increase urination) and cause the body to lose water. This loss of fluids dries out the voice. Alcohol also irritates the mucous membranes that line the throat.

Drink plenty of water. Six to eight glasses a day is recommended

Don't smoke and avoid second-hand smoke. Cancer of the vocal folds is seen most often in individuals who smoke.

Practice good breathing techniques when singing or talking. It is important to support your voice with deep breaths from the diaphragm, the wall that separates your chest and abdomen.

Talking from the throat, without supporting breath, puts a great strain on the voice.

Consult speech language Pathologist to learn vocal hygiene.

My friend just got out of the hospital, he was being treated for pneumonia and asthma. His complaints include the feeling of being choked, phlegm in the throat that s hard to expel and he has to drink water so some phlegm will come out and whenever he has the choking feeling, he also gets dizzy and increased heartbeat. Together with this, he also has hoarse voice right now, and loss of smell. He is 27 years old. He did endoscopy and the doctor found that thick mucus in his throat developed. He then prescribed Omeprazole and a nasal spray for the nose. However my friend is not very confident with the ENT doctor s diagnosis. With the choking feeling, he feels something is wrong. My question is, with the feeling of being choked and just generally different feeling , is he at risk for esophageal cancer? He smoked before (non-consistent in college), and very rarely drink alcohol.
