Why Does My Voice Become Husky When I Strenuously Exert Myself?
Just curious as sometimes I have noticed that when I strenuously except myself my voice changes and becomes a little husky. Is this indicative of anything?
Examination is required
Do you want to ask - strenuous exercise is causing voice change?
Is it associated with difficulty in breathing? or is it associated with throat pain and difficulty in swallowing?
If breathing difficulty is associated with voice change, I suggest you should consult physician for examination. Blood pressure measurement and some investigations related to blood and lung functions will be done by him/her. This will guide us about exact pathology.
If throat pain and swallowing difficulty is present along with fever do following:
- Do salt water gargles in lukewarm water.
- Avoid oily and cold food for at least 1 week.
- Azithromycin 3-5 course may be needed, so you can get it prescribed from nearby physician.
There are no other symptoms other than the ones I have described
Cardiologist opinion for mitral stenosis
- Since how long you have this problem?
- Is it progressive?
- Did you also feel palpitations (feeling of heartbeats) along with it?
- Do you have recent onset leg edema (swelling)?
My advice is to go for Echocardiogram. As secondary laryngeal nerve compression caused by mitral stenosis can cause hoarseness of voice. Although this (Ortner's syndrome) is rare condition, we have to rule it out at earliest. So consult cardiologist and get Echocardiogram done.
Hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.
