Bronchial spasms

I've been experiencing tightness of the chest, deep coughing spells that can at least last about 5 minutes. Then also after the spasms as I was told, it always affect my vocal cords: laryngitis really bad that will last almost a week ? Can this be bronchial spasms?

Re: Bronchial spasms

Bronchospasm (the constriction of the muscles in your airways) does cause shortness of breath and coughing, but it's not really something that happens by itself - it's a symptom of a condition like asthma, bronchitis, COPD, or exposure to something that irritates your airways.

It's not unusual for the vocal chords to get a little irritated by a flare up of asthma or bronchitis but the kind of ongoing laryngitis you mention sounds more serious - I wonder if you could have some kind of inflammation or infection in your larynx.

Either way, you really should see a pulmonologist to see if he/she can help identify the underlying cause of your symptoms.
