No: Vocal cord dysfunction with closing of the vocal cords inappropriately can cause wheezing in the throat can mimic asthma. Vocal cord dysfunction is frequently associated with acid reflux disease. Rhinoscopy can be helpful in making the diagnosis. Speech therapy can be very helpful in treating this condition.
