Dear,

sorry to hear about your problem,

i am online and will be happy to assist you.

pericarditis is most commonly viral in origin and the same virus can cause inflammation of voice apparatus ( larynx and vocal cords), swelling, and this also improves with time.

yes , i recommend you to see ENT specialist to have a look at your voice apparatus with laryngoscope to see if there is any inflammation, and if you need anytihng beyond advair.
