I'm presenting at the most important academic conference of my entire career thus far in 2 days (presenting research to literally 900-1000 people), and as luck would have it my voice has suddenly disappeared (aphonia -- albeit temporary). I haven't been straining it in anyway, but I have been experiencing a sore-throat and fatigue and a tickling in my throat and now it's completely gone.... (not sure if it's laryngitis). Unfortunately, I'm boarding an international flight in less than 15 hours and don't have time to see a doctor, what are my treatment options?

I already suffer from major glossophobia (fear of public speaking) so this is quite possibly the worst thing to lump on top of me. Ah! (Is it possible I lost my voice out of fear?).

Anyway, any tips on how to regain a voice would be very much appreciated!!
