Acid Reflux or GERD combined with the symptoms of flu can cause symptoms of laryngitis.
I have gotten over the flu for the most part, but not completely.
For more than 4 weeks I had symptoms of the flu and after a doctor told me my lungs were clear I felt relief.
But that hangover cough that lingers for days or perhaps weeks after the flu is over with, along with having GERD also known as acid reflux, I have some degree of laryngitis. It has occurred off and on throughout my life. It is temporary but somewhat disturbing. I mean when I want to talk I just cant do so without doing more damage so I have to remain silent for the next few days and drink fluids and breath vaporized air from a electric water vaporizer. The flu in and of itself is potentially a killer.
Below is a good article that covers the subject of laryngitis from the Mayo Clinic online.
