Question by  CB9019 (3)

I have lost my voice for 8 days now and should I be worried?

I have no sore throat and have not been ill. I just cannot seem to talk.

Higher control of talking orginates from the brain. The signal passes through nerves and then to the muscles to move the vocal cords to produce sounds. Apart from usual cold and flu that causes transient loss of voice, anything in that signal pathway can go wrong. Better see a doctor.

Yes, Losing your voice when you are not sick is abnormal and I would recommend you contact your doctor immediately. Anytime you lose your voice more than a few days you should contact your doctor.
