Questions and answers on "Laryngitis"

Hello, I have earlier been diagnosed with laryngitis. I smoke, but have only for a year or so. And never too much. Now recently, I've been getting laryngitis again, probably due to more smoking, a week of alcohol, and lowered immune system. I'm feeling much better now, and I'm wondering if it's okay for me to take up smoking again. Not as hard as before, but atleast to some point.

doctor1 MD

Hi.
Welcome to HCM.
Thank you for the query.
I understand your concern.

No. Laryngitis without sore throat but runny nose may not be sign of ARS.
This could probably be just a viral infection and nothing more.

I have an extremely sore throat, violently shivering, aches all over my body and an upset feeling stomach. the dr said i either have laryngitis or tonsillitis but i didn't hear as i was to busy thinking about my sore aching. what does it sound more like?

doctor1 MD

most probably it could be tonsillitis or viral fever. you need to undergo examination and also blood investigations for confirming the cause. do not worry at all.

I thought I had laryngitis, lost my voice and had no sore throat. I also had a runny nose and cough. My dr prescribed amoxicillin but since taking it I've had a tight chest and small pain in my upper back, feel like I may be sick and a sore head. Is this related to the laryngitis?

doctor1 MD

Hi
The laryngitis is due to the cold you had but you now may also have developed the flu and you should ask your doctor for a prescription for Tamiflu

Hi, I have had the flu and bronchitis. Now I have laryngitis and can't talk at all. The flu symptoms are gone, but I am still coughing from the bronchitis. I started taking Mucinex-D and gargling with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Also I use my nebulizer with allbuterol for my bronchitis. Is there anything else I can do for my laryngitis symptoms? I am drinking as much water as I can.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Laryngitis is inflammation of the larynx.In your case, it is likely related to your viral illness but there are other causes such as excess use of the vocal cords, allergies, gastroesophageal reflux ( GERD).

The main aspect of treatment is resting your voice....

I had laryngitis and so purchased an expectorant. I have been taking it for 5 days and it is definately helping. However, I am getting nose bleeds and sores in and on my nose from blowing my nose.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Good Day
You may do salt water gargling. You need to get examined to rule out tonsillar infection. Mostly it is a viral pharyngitis which should explain the body pain as well. It should subside within 7 days. Take plenty of water and fruits for Vitamin C. You may...

Sould I be using a decongestant for laryngitis? My doctor says it's due to a virus infection but I don't have any other cold symptoms. I read on the Mayo Clinic website to avoid decongestants but my doctor said to use Mucinex which hasn't done anything for the laryngitis. It's been 5 days with little or no voice. Thank you.

doctor1 MD

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
Laryngitis may be due to cold, infection, or due to excess usage by talking, or singing, shouting etc.
The treatment depends upon the diagnosis, so i advise you to consult an E.N.T surgeon, for diagnosis and treatment.
Unless the infection is controlled...

Umm, i sing extreme metal songs. It was like 2 months ago i had to sing for a concert, after which i had this problem with my throat. It started with a discomfort and a kinda something stuck in my throat feeling. When inspected i found small granules developed in my posterior oropharynx region. I thought maybe it was the case of overuse of vocal chords and something related with it... (i had similar problems related to it a year ago, took voice rest for about two weeks plus AMOXICILLIN case: ACUTE laryngitis and got rid of it) I did voice rests, took amoxicillin for couple of days and i stopped... which i shouldn t have done. It went good for couple of days but the discomfort continued... I ve stopped singing and try not to speak more. After about a month,i visited a doc, he said its the case of CHRONIC pharyngitis. He prescribed AMOXICILLIN, CETIRIZINE for a week... but the granules are still there. They are itchy. The dry cough kinda feel is omnipresent. Whenever i take dairy products, i get this dry cough kinda feeling that causes the discomfort. It comes and goes... Even foods that are not that spicy causes the discomfort. I cough but mostly saliva. The doc says the problem is related with my nose, now i m on to CLAVAM 625 starting today... he says i gotta get operated for the solution. says the granules are the result of the nasal infection... when the nasal part is done the granules will subside themselves... The doc says its not too serious, but i still have the discomfort... Is it because i didn t took the proper dose for AMOXICILLIN that the granules are still there??? Suggestions please. Thank you.

Can Cervical DDD of C6-7 cause breathing issues? After a sinus infection in Feb and again in May, had difficulty breathing. Both times dr thought pneumonia, but xrays were clear. The first time, I was off work two weeks and eventually the shortness of breath went away. This time, it persists. I have psoriatic arthritis boarding on lupus so Doc though might be related to that and scheduled apt with pulmonary medicine, but they can t get me in till July 21st. Ended up in er yesterday, thought was having heart attack, as heart was beating hard, couldn t breathe, tingling down the arms, but heart is fine. Today I had CTScan of lungs to check for possible PE, but can was good. My o2 sats have remained good throughout at 98-99. I get the numbness down the arms, pain in shoulders (right is worse and got shot in it), can t lay on by back cause arms go numb, sometimes feel like fire ants are biting me. Oh, and I sound like I have laryngitis...have since this started. Based on an xray back in Oct 2013, I have DDD with narrowing of C6-C7. It s my understanding that the nerves from that area go to the lung area and throat. Since pulmonary keeps coming up negative, is it possible it s actually related to the spine instead, and I should have that checked out further?
