I was just wondering if other asthmatics have experience of getting a cold, then after the cold has progressed ending up with laryngitis. I haven't been formally diagnosed with the laryngitis but the symptoms fit, sharp pain in my voice box on talking, croakiness, weird tickly sensation and dry cough and unable to shift a bit of mucous at the back. It has been going on now 6 weeks after the cold started (rest of it duly disappeared 5 weeks ago) but I've been left with this irritating problem that when I go to speak sometimes nothing comes out and a sharp pain shoots through my larynx/throat. I have booked an appt to see the doctor as I think its probably something that needs investigating even if its just to check everything is ok. Highly irrating when I answer the phone at work though and the poor person at the other end gets 5-6 seconds of a strangled noise before I can form words.
I guess what I'm just asking is has anyone else experienced this? Got 8 days until I can get to see my GP and I just wondered if this is a common asthma related type thing or not.
