I have a very nasal voice. I also have allergies, I don't think it's from stuffy nose because sometimes I don't have a stuffy nose but still am nasal.

I have a very nasal voice. I also have allergies, I don't think it's from stuffy nose because sometimes I don't have a stuffy nose but still am nasal.

Check with doctor: I have found that many people have got used to their nasal stuffiness even when it is present. Your perception of not having stuffy nose may well be what you have got used to. See your doctor when you think you don't have any nasal problem and see what he finds. I'd bet that you do always have moderate degree of nasal stuffiness. ...Read more

Nasal voice: If you sound like your nose is always stuffed up, surgery might improve your voice, but there are some medications which might help, too. I would go to see an ENT to evaluate your nasal airway to see what is the problem (allergies, deviated septum, large adenoid, etc.). ...Read more

Could rhinoplasty improve my singing voice? I have a very nasal singing voice. Is it possible for a rhinoplasty to correct this? .

Voice changes: Rhinoplasty and particularly septoplasty can cause changes in the voice. This is particularly in the case of an obstructed nasal airway with a nasal voice. When the obstruction is relieved, the voice might change with this as well. I would not depend on this procedure alone to change your voice, however, as voice production is more complex than this. Try voice therapy first. ...Read more

Can allergies from post nasal drip cause voice box to swell. In 2 month ent go do Barium swallow and allergy eating if no better but I not hoarse?

Sounds like: You have had laryngeal irritation from ACID REFLUX and you are taking Protonix (pantoprazole) for these symptoms! This is not "really" an allergy and your post nasal drip is a different issue (Flonase is being prescribed for that!
Sounds like you need to sit down with the Health Care Provider who is treating you with some models of your upper airway/GI tract...a little "teaching" is my suggestion. Just a thought ...Read more

Pulsing head + dizzy/lightheaded when lie down. Ears clogged, pressure in eyes/face, nasal voice often. Allergies. Cervical issues. What specialist?

Doctor for allergies: Allergists treat the allergies and the ear- blocking and headaches that come with them. They don't do neck adjustments in the USA. I would start with an allergist and if they do not help you, consider seeing an otolaryngologist for structural causes of the nose and ears giving you these symptoms. For the neck, you may need a different doctor entirely, depends on what symptoms you have. ...Read more

Can nasal congestion make your voice hoarse?

Can nasal congestion make your voice hoarse?

It can be associated: Congestion can be caused by allergies or nasal infection. That process could affect the vocal cords causing swelling and hoarseness at the same time. Or drainage down the back of the throat could cause inflation of the vocal cords causing hoarseness. Or gastroesphogeal reflux could splash on the vocal cords or into the back of the nose causing both hoarseness and nasal congestion. ...Read more

See your ENT: You have some sort of chronic problem, but it is hard to know what is going on over the computer. Most likely you are dealing with allergies, chronic sinusitis, or perhaps laryngeal reflux. A thorough history, physical exam and maybe some x-rays or other tests will help sort out the problem. Sinus rinses are a helpful solution for sinus congestion and allergy complaints as well. Good luck! ...Read more

Depends: Nasal polyps are fluid filled inflammatory sacs that appear in the nose and sinuses of people with allergies, aspirin sensitivity, or chronic sinusitis. If your voice is nasal and congested it will likely improve but if your voice issues are caused by vocal cord polyps or other pathology than it may not. You should discuss this with your surgeon. ...Read more
