Well, it might help you. I know that when I talk real loud or scream/yell, my vocal cords and throat sometimes get irritated, which doesn't help with the dysphagia. However, I wouldn't go as far as not talking. If anything, maybe talk less or not as loud for a day or two. What helps me is sipping on chamomile tea and chewing on gum that contains baking soda, since it seems to have a coating effect (at least it feels that way to me). Another thing that helps me is staying hydrated, especially overnight. If i go to bed even a bit thirsty I'll keep waking up throughout the night with a dry/sticky throat, which can be uncomfortable and probably isn't an ideal condition for the throat to be in. Good luck!
