    So sorry to hear this. I was there a year ago. I couldn't sing anything, and it was very depressing. Hopefully the vocal cord specialist will be able to get you taken care of and get your "pipes" working again. I will be praying for you.

    I had acid reflux laryngitis. I just happened to have an apointment with my ENT the week I lost my voice. He did a scope and told me that the pattern of inflamation was from acid reflux. So I started agressively trying to get that under control. I have, and my voice has returned. It took about 6 months to get my singing voice mostly back, but it continues to improve everyday. I had a weird break between middle and head voice for a long time, but that has improved. I still fight it every once in a while, but most of the time I am not crakcing there anymore. It feels really good to be back. Now if I could just get my fragrance reactions under control so I could actually go to church. lol

    Keep me posted. I am interested in what the specialist has to say.

    Take care and I will be praying for you.
    God bless.
