Q: After talking a bit, my voice gets raspy and I almost lose it. Is this a symptom of asthma?

I lose my voice after talking some.  I just want to know if this is a symptom of my asthma?

I have asthma, diabetes, thyroid disease, and take blood pressure meds.  I take 500/  of advair.  But I am bad about forgetting to use it twice a day. 

Can someone answer my question?

Thank you,

I've never particularly heard that hoarseness is a symptom of asthma, but I suppose it's possible, especially if you're not remembering to take your Advair regularly. I'm wondering too, if you might have allergies, which can definitely cause hoarseness due to the postnasal drip they induce.


Any time you have an unexplained symptom like this, your best bet is to consult with your doctor, who knows you and your medical history and will be better prepared to answer specific questions about your health than we can.
