Can hoarse voice and tiredness be related?

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?

Hi,

Noted the history of a 23 year old female having hoarse voice, has increased tiredness for about 6 weeks that has passed off now, no post-nasal drip, no reflux. It seems that you have asthma as you have mentioned so.
Well, the commonest cause of hoarseness of voice at your age is vocal cord thickening or so.
The best way is to consult an ENT Surgeon for laryngoscopy to know the exact condition of vocal cords so that an appropriate management can be done.
Till then give complete rest for voice.
Take plain water steam inhalation.
Plenty of warm liquids orally.
Multivitamins, minerals and trace elements as you had tiredness.
Treatment of asthma if you suffer from it.
Take Ibuprofen if it suits you.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T. Chandrakant,

Hi, I have been treated recently for a sinus Infection, but I have been suffering from nausea, and my voice has been hoarse for months now, and low grade fevers, I am very tired too? I already know I have a slow thyroid, but is this something related to that or sinus issues? I haven t been this nauseated since pregnancy, and I am not pregnant ( hysterectomy) I am concerned, what could it be?

I'm a 48 year old white male, around 205 pounds (weight is up & down by 5 pounds), had a 4 level lumbar fusion in 2006, was very active to that point. The surgery, although made my spine stable, left me with a lot of nerve pain. In 2007, I was diagnosed with asthma, there was plural fluid in the right lung. So I'm battling both pain and asthma, with fluid build up some. More recently, I had swelling of the ankles & feet, was seen by a heart specialist, after a complete set of tests, my heart was fine. I've been on Furosemide 40mg for fluid (since 12/10), it was somewhat under control.
The last week or so, my ankles & feet, as well as my lower legs, are swelling again (worse), even though I'm on the water pill mentioned above. I don't know what to do, I go to the doctor, my blood counts looks good, prior to going to the heart doctor, I had to go to the ER for what amounted to be severe constipation, high white blood cell counts were noted. My legs are also tingly.
What can I do?
