I was feverish for about two weeks with a sore throat. Additionally, there was coughing and sneezing. I lived on ibuprofen, the fever finally broke, and around that time I added cough drops with echinacea, and I lost my voice (laryngitis). I could only whisper or a painful hoarseness. The slight fever might return when I'm overly tired or stressed..

My only symptom of laryngitis was extreme hoarseness; no sore throat, no coughing. I went to a walk-in clinic and was diagnosed with strep throat. I never thought you could get strep without sore throat. I was prescribed amoxicillin and two-day round of prednisone. I am somewhat better after just 8 hours and also taking Sudafed and gargling with original Listerine..
