darkclaw3000 Posted September 13, 2012 Share Posted September 13, 2012 ok around the 3rd week of august i was having coughs, almost had a fever but i manage to recover, but the cough remains. i continued coughing for a week or so, n this one time it was bad (just woke up n cough like crazy), went to the bathroom n vomited out blood. ( i think it was blood coz its looks really red.. ) that was like a few weeks ago? (seriously i've lost the time frame here... ) after that i thought my voice was back so i resume singing ( during the coughing n before i wasnt singing much at all). when i resume singing i realized that my usual voice, or my usual way of singing, maybe the technique or approach, is all gone, or very different. e.g, theres a certain way that when i sing the higher notes, i can activate this rasp. now i can't. if i try to do it, it sounds completely different n horrible. i began doing some light scales, some vocal exercises, it SEEMS fine. no breathiness, no rasp or hoarseness.. that i know of. (to me! i dont know for sure!!). but when i sing its all different feeling. how i got really sure my voice is different is by singing the songs i usually sing. all sounded different. although i can reach the pitch n notes, the way it was done was different. last monday i went to jam practice, usually i can hold out for 2 hours, now after about an hour i was struggling. i do not know whats really happening here. some say i havent really healed yet. i read some articles, maybe its dehydration. another i read, i may have some kinda problem on my vocal folds. so, experts out there, those who are reading this (i thank u deeply from the bottom of my heart), how do i check if my voice is ok or not? does it help if i record me doing a scale n u listen to it? (pls state the scale) i'm startin to panic actually.. i dont want to go to an ENT specialist YET. its expensive.. =(.. hope i get some answers here........ thank u thank u thank u!!!
