Hi guys, I have been following the program for the last 4 years and have tremendous improvement but last Thursday, I was going to do my vocal workout even though I had terrible phlegm in my throat. I did the lip roll and Immediately knew something was wrong. It now feels like there is something holding my vocal cords down when I try to hit basically any note. Im very concerned as I’m sure you can understand. Has anybody encountered this?

    Rick have you had Covid? My ENT told me that's what I'm experiencing - as I have similar symptoms. I lose breath at random times, and I can't push up into notes at all. Just like you're saying.

    Yeah I have had Covid twice, the most recent being in January. Have you recovered yet? If so how long did it take?

    I have been infected with covid twice too..first in the early 2022..and the second one on early november..

    its been a month already since i've recovered from second infection..i still haven't fully recovered..
    although, im glad that i haven't lost my upper range..but the thing is, my vocal cord get tired very quick..whenever i tried to sustain the note, i would break into headvoice..

    So how have you been? How long it takes for you to fully recovered? How long it takes for your voice to become normal again?

    I’m doing great now, but it was a couple of months before I got my voice back. Scary stuff man.
