A crushed or severly bruised larynx is a critical injury, although it is not 100% lethal. The problem is the collapse of the process, and/or the subsequent swelling shutting down the airway causing asphyxia. Note that a victim of this sort of injury who can breathe immediately after the injury, may have more trouble later, as swelling increases. If you suspect a crushed larynx, transport. That way, if things go south, you'll be in a place equipped for surgical intervention.

The larynx is the voicebox. You can live without them. People that develop throat cancer sometimes need to get a hole drilled there so that they can talk. This procedure is a tracheostomy. Without a larynx, you can live but cannot talk without aid.

No, ants cannot live in crushed limestone. Ants don't tend to like limestone and it acts as a deterrent. Furthermore, crushed limestone helps to balance pH levels.

It's important you see your doctor. It could be a thyroid disorder or simply you have accidentally bruised the larynx. Don't second-guess and get into to your doctor ASAP.
