You are most likely having laryngitis.

Rest to the voice is urgent.

This can occur from overuse of voice as in singers, irritation from smoke, infection or also any growth etc.

You should not delay in consulting an ENT doctor to begin proper treatment.

I hope this information will help.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.

Myself and another employee have the same symtoms. Do you think it is something in the work place. Myself I have been working 7 days a week for the past year. I work in a cold storage warehouse here in florida,.

Exposure to cold predisposes to upper respiratory infection. It can be determined by an ENT examination.
