Based upon your history looks like you have developed Laryngitis.
Laryngitis is an inflammation of your voice box (larynx) from overuse, irritation or infection.
in laryngitis, your vocal cords become inflamed or irritated. This swelling causes distortion of the sounds produced by air passing over them. As a result, your voice sounds hoarse. In some cases of laryngitis, your voice can become almost undetectable.

Some self-care methods and home treatments may relieve the symptoms of laryngitis and reduce strain on your voice:

Breathe moist air. Use a humidifier to keep the air throughout your home or office moist. Inhale steam from a bowl of hot water or a hot shower.

Rest your voice as much as possible. Avoid talking or singing too loudly or for too long.

Drink plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration (avoid alcohol and caffeine).

Moisten your throat. Try sucking on lozenges, gargling with salt water or chewing a piece of gum.

Avoid decongestants. These medications can dry out your throat.

Avoid whispering. This puts even more strain on your voice than normal speech does.
