I am having vocal hydration trouble while singing?

Hi I am tenor sometimes 2nd alto depending on the key of the song. Recently the last few events I've noticed that I struggle severely with my upper range (which used to be no problem for me at all) While singing my voice becomes extremely dry and hoarse (for no reason that it should be) and it makes me fight to stay on pitch and key because it is so dry. And to me, my tone sounds so weak (compared to what it used to sound like) and forced. Do I need help with this? My voice seems fine before singing then I get up to sing I'm in a fight to stay on pitch and key because it gets extremely dry?
