Yes!: It can. You should see your doctor and get a pulmonary functions test, with pre -& post bronchodilalator studies.
Dr. Joseph Bouvier

Yes: But get yourself checked either way by a physician even if you have asthma meds that help.

A 35-year-old member asked:

What to do if I have larngitious and tight chest could I have asthma ?

Not necessarily : Laryngitis and a "tight chest" may be from infections, or other causes unrelated to asthma. If you think you may have asthma, do wait around- get tested by your physician. It's very simple and can be done in the office. Again, don't wait-get tested. Good Luck
