I have an voice issue I would like some peoples opinion on, or similar stories, advise or their take.
11 weeks ago, I lost my voice at a festival, (first ever voice problem, silly, but never again) through shouting and screaming songs at the top of my voice for hours.
I couldn't talk properly for a few weeks (Hoarse voice) then my I was able to talk fine, but chose not to for about a month, but still after 12 weeks, the bottom few notes of my falsetto is very weak, and the rest of it I cant sing. I just get air when I attempt to sing those notes I used to have power and control over. I try to speak as minimally as possible, and stay away from loud environments.
I use my falsetto a lot in my RnB/Pop songs, and am working on a EP but is on hold until I can actually sing again, with no issue :-/ I also have shows booked in New York in Spring (5 months time). Music is my life and career, so this is incredibly scary for me, as my career is just kicking off.
My voice generally feel weak, as its a muscle and hasn’t been exercised a lot. Im unsure weather to try to start rebuilding its strength or to wait until I feel its healed to the point it was at before it was initially damaged?
I am in no pain whatsoever, but just feels like theres a limit on my voice.
I am awaiting to have seen an ENT doctor on the National Health Service (NHS) which could take upto 3 months to get seen? Didn't go prior to this because I thought vocal damage would have been gone by now.
Has anyone got any similar stories to this, suggestions or have anything to say on this. I would be incredibly thankful for any replies.
Thanks in advance
