Sore throat / vocal cords
I am noticing that as soon as I talk to friends for an evening for example in a restaurant or even just visiting at someone's house my vocal cords or throat starts getting sore. I experience a tightness in the throat area and my voice becomes hoarse.  As soon as I stop talking, for example, go to bed - the next morning my voice and vocal cords feel fine and the hoarsness is gone.  I never experience it at work but don't talk as much at work.   Is there something I can do about it or should I be worried about it.

There are several possible reasons for this from vocal cord strain to a nodule on the vocal cords to post nasal drip that is irritating your throat.  The best person to determine the cause, is an ENT specialist who will look down your throat and visualize the vocal cords.  Speak with your physician about the next steps to deal with this problem.
