For the past five days, and still exceeding, my adam’s apple has began to hurt. Is there any particular cause for this? Is it part of the developmental process?
I have no way of knowing what is causing the discomfort, but it shouldn’t be part of the developmental process. I recommend you get some professional input, ideally from and laryngologist — once someone sees and hears what you are doing they will be able to make suggestions about what is creating the vocal strain.
