Hi everyone. I'm new here and was just after a. It of advice. Unfortunately due to an altercation waiting for a taxi I was attaked and strangled for around 10 seconds. I wasn't unconscious and felt I had got away relatively unharmed, however I have been having problems since and it has now reached the 12 day point and I'm not seeing much improvement. The main problem seems to be finding it difficult to speak.
I am finding I am having to force myself to talk and it is uncomfortable and my voice is every weak. It almost feels like there is something stuck in the middle of my throat. The pain has went down and isn't so much of an issue but the fact I'm finding it hard to talk is severely affecting my confidence and making me feel vert down, especially in work.
I have been to the walk in centre but they have said I should go to a and e. I have left it so long as I just thought it was brushing however I'm worried something more serious may have happened. I haven't yet been to my doctor for the same reason.
Any advice or reassurance from anyone who has went through the same would be very much appreciated.
