Brief Answer: get investigated Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for your query. Since it is a long term condition I strongly recommend you to get investigated in detail. You may be needing tests like Chest xray, PFT (Pulmonary Function Test), Complete blood counts etc. Do consult a internal medicine specialist or a Pulmonologist for the same. Meanwhile do take steam inhalations and an expectorant syrup like BROZEDEX 10 ml thrice daily. Regards,

i am A 23 yr old female. i have had a hoarse voice for over a month now (not so significantly hoarse that its hard to hear me, but enough that my range is affected and i sound different and feel hoarse) i have had a few other symptoms which may or may not be unrelated... I was increasingly tired for about 6 weeks but that seems to have passed. I feel no post nasal drip, and i do not feel as if this is an asthma related hoarseness, i also do not feel any reflux. what could it be?

I have a 9 year old daughter who for about a year now, off and on, complains that it s a little bit hard to breathe . She says she is in no pain, just difficult to get a full breath. He younger sister has mild asthma that presents itself usually only with a cold. When it started early last spring I took her to the walk in clinic and the doctor told me it could be mild asthma too, to try the inhaler route. We did, but it didn t seem to help. That time it went on for a couple of weeks most evenings around bed time. I thought it might be allergies so I took her back to our family doctor who gave us a nasal inhaler to try. I m not sure it helped either. We went through a couple of months of nothing but now again, she is been a couple of weeks, not every day, but almost every other day saying it s hard to breathe again . I had her try her nasel spray again, but am wondering if there is something else I should try? or should I take her back to the family doctor? Thank you.
