Have you tried gargling again and again with lukewarm salt water and spitting it out? Another remedy I have tried in the past is a mixture of garlic, honey, and lemon juice in luke warm water and drinking it, and doing that three times a day. I lost my voice once for a week, so I feel your pain. Please let me know what you think of these remedies and if they help you.

Hey, there's always typing on a computer, a pad of paper and pen, and American Sign Language, if nothing else works. LOL

Sometimes there's not much you can do. You may have to wait it out. But if you don't wish, try lemon, mint tea with honey in it.
