Default Help!! My car won't go into 2nd

I posted in Tranny forums but not much help. Beginning last night I cannot shift into 2nd gear at all. All other gears shift smooth. I have never had a problem with grinding gears. A couple of months ago my car would not let me shift into 2nd but it quickly fixed itself.....this time it's not. Some have said broken shifter fork and others say synchros. Don't you usually get a warning when synchros go bad i.e. grinding during shifting and such. Mine went out suddenly which makes me think it is something in the linkage which needs some adjustment. I have kartboy bushings which have been in for about 6 months. I could really use some advice because 1st to 3rd is killing me in the city.
