Wondering if anyone has noticed an effect on their voice after lots of Ventolin in a short space of time?
My voice sounds very odd after lots of nebs in hospital when I start being able to talk properly again, but I have usually put that down to the aftereffects of an attack.
In the last couple of days I have needed lots of Ventolin and noticed my voice sounded a bit odd when answering the phone, even when I had temporarily banished the symptoms. I know it makes my hands shake which is annoying as people think I am anxious. I have a few job interviews at the moment so keen not to come across odd/anxious and just wondering if anyone else has found this happens/any solutions? Having to balance breathing with non funny voice (most interviews have been phone so far so can be done at home, hoping lungs behave for face to face...).
In case anyone sees this and thinks it's a big red flag how much reliever I'm taking - yes it isn't ideal but I am a severe asthmatic who is partially resistant to steroids so in this situation I can only rest, take Ventolin and check in with my asthma nurse at the hospital if needed. My good day is needing Ventolin about 3x a day. I'm already on everything I can be on!
At the moment, annoyingly, I can tell I am in that in between phase, but would of course act if it got worse. Stress doesn't affect my asthma but it does seem like my lungs know when I have stuff to do!
