Difficulty breathing. Here is another main symptom of laryngitis. Do not even think to ignore it. While your nose is runny and you feel a discomfort, it is very easy to miss the signal of your body about laryngitis. Your breathing will become difficult not just because of your nose, but also your lungs. Some people compare these feelings as like they are trying to breathe through a straw. Both inhaling and exhaling become difficult and out of a normal beat.
