vocal cord dysfunction

My son, aged 16, was diagnosed with vocal cord dysfunction  syndrome several years ago.  He has gotten some speech therapy and has tried an inhaler of atrovent before exercise buy still will have attacks during rigorous activities, especially wrestling. Does anyone know of anything else that can help  these attacks? They are not often but when they occur can be pretty severe.

I wish I could help you, but I was looking for help myself. I was wrongly diagnosed with asthma about 15 years ago. Just a couple of months ago I got a correct diagnosis at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. I have about 3 or more attacks daily. I find drinking hot liquids, especially tea is helpful. Asthma medicines have never helped. I do use Primatene mist when I can no longer breathe which is usually several times a week.
