What happens to/in your throat when you scream your voice hoarse?

Posting this might have something to do with having been to a metal show a few days ago, and another one tomorrow lol.

Your vocal folds are muscles that vibrate together when you push air through them. So, screaming is kind of like the equivalent of trying to lift really heavy things with your arms. The next day they’re tired, right? If you lift too heavy (aka scream), you might damage those muscles and they won’t work right until they’ve healed a bit.

In addition to the muscular strain/tearing, the vocal folds can get abrasions and bruising. This can lead to tears, scarring, and nodules (similar to calluses). At times, irritation of the vocal folds leads to excess mucus production. Proper care and resting of the voice after use is required to prevent such damage from becoming permanent, which will affect range, tone, and control.
