Questions and Answers

I have lost my head voice for two weeks. Is there something serious going on with my voice?

I am 17 and I sing soprano 1 in my choir. Two weeks ago I got my wisdom teeth out, which might not be related, but shortly after I lost my voice completely. After two weeks, my speaking voice is only a little hoarse, but I've lost my entire head voice, and my range resembles that of a tenor. I can reach lower notes than I ever have before, but as soon as I try to sing in mixed or head voice, my voice either goes very raspy or cuts out completely. I have been resting it for weeks, and today was the first time I tried to sing since losing it, so I haven't been straining my voice hardly at all. I also haven't been sick, so I know it isn't in relation to a flu or cold. The only thing wrong is my voice. I am going to major in music and have honor choir coming up, so I have a lot riding on getting my voice back as soon as possible. If nothing improves I will see a doctor, but I was wondering if you had any ideas as to what might be going on with my vocal chords. I have never lost my voice this much or for this long before, and it is very worrying. The article has touched on losing voice due to sickness, but I wasn't sick when I lost my voice. I also had an oral surgery, which hasn't been discussed in the article. I'm very young so I know it isn't due to age, and after reading the article I still have no idea why my voice has died on me. I have tried: I have tried resting my voice, drinking lots of water, etc. I have been sleeping better and eating healthier so as not to damage anything further and I am on break so I haven't had to sing in choir or talk at school. I think it was caused by: All I can think of is that it might be linked to my wisdom teeth extraction, even though other articles I've read said it couldn't cause this problem. That is the only thing out of the ordinary that has been going on.
