Lost voice to a severe cough, tremors

Patient : My symptom started out about 6 days ago as if I was losing my voice but has now steadily developed into more of a persistent cough and a minor soar throat. I still have a lot of difficulty talking still. Any suggestions?
Symptoms:  Lost voice, cough with discharge, sore throat and tremors but no fever
Doctor :   You want to make sure you don't have strep throat....that is the main thing we worry about...some symptoms of strep incl ude: - Sore and red swollowen throat - fever and a headache - upset stomach, vomitting - white blisters or patches in back of throat My suggestion is to monitor it for the day as it may just be a bad cough and try drinking lots of fluids, tea, lots of vitamin c etc. If it still is not on the mend after a day of rest, go see your doctor.
