Possible deviated septum

    Hi Camille, I wonder if you have any advice on voice training whilst having certain health issues and whether this could be damaging it even more.

    I will be seeking treatment for this permanent congestion and post-nasal drip I have but I imagine this isn't going to happen overnight and I wondered could a person still train their voice despite these current problems?

    I don't have a permanent sore throat and my voice can actually be quite clear at times but it tires very easily from what I suspect is a deviated septum related problem.

    My 2 concerns are that 1. I am damaging my voice by trying to sing through constant congestion and phlegm or 2. It is impossible for my voice to improve despite daily training because of this congestion and phlegm.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated. It's so frustrating to be working on improving your voice when other factors are preventing you to do so.

    Thanks,
    Natasha :)

    I understand that frustration, Natasha! I'm not a doctor, so please refer to them for health advice. That said, if you're not feeling pain, then I encourage you to sing! You can certainly train the coordination for singing, and once the congestion and postnasal drip is resolved, hopefully it's even easier to sing without tiring easily and achieve a clear tone consistently.

    Hi Camille,

    Thank you very much for the advice. I will follow all of it and also get the doctor to take a look at everything.
