Following quite a bad allergic reaction to my cousin's cat last Sunday, I had an asthma attack, since which my voice has gone. My throat feels dry but not too sore and I've developed a dry hacking cough. Because of the dryness, my asthma keeps triggering and I feel like I'm in a non-stop cycle. I took last week off work but was hoping to return this week. I was at the doctor's on Friday for something unrelated and the GP was a bit taken aback by how I'd lost my voice, but, as I said, I was there for something unrelated so it wasn't discussed much. I was hoping to return to work this week but the symptoms persist :-( Has anyone else lost their voice in a similar fashion? I would just like some indication of how long this might last for.
