I have a very hard time with meds to the point of my life of quality is more important than quantity of time. Medication is not going good.
I strongly believe in the power of God and believe that He is what has sustained me this far.
I’m open to more natural things.
Everyone has an opinion, this is just mine.
Just sharing my thoughts and not bashing anyone that thinks different.
Ally so sorry to hear that. It is so hard to not do the things we want to do. I have such a hard time saying no. And I might feel good and say yes then get to doing what I want to do and feel like crap and can’t breath and still don’t want to so no. Thinking of you today❤️
I am as much an expect as a TREE growing in a yard after a Hurricane has gone through, but here goes! COPD Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. COPD. This is only a title of numerous ongoing conditions of diseases that affect the airflow in and out of your LUNGS. They require Lab tests and imaging of some sort to get a Medical Diagnosis..It ranges from Asthma, Bronchitis, Lung Cancer and anything that interferes with the air flow from the outside of your body to the air sacs inside the lungs.
As for Pulmonary Hypertension, it is basically having high blood pressure in the arteries of your Lungs and the right side of your heart that pumps blood to your Lungs. Over time the walls of your heart thicken and also the Arterial walls in your Lungs.become thicken making it more difficult for the heart to pump enough blood into the lungs, Without enough blood moving by those air sacs to pick up oxygen you will start having symptoms. Some of the symptoms would be a rapid heart rate. Usually this tells the body, "HEY! Something wrong Here!" Next, Maybe a chest pain or lightheadedness. If you are like the most of US the swollen ankles, arms, hands you will ignore but the Shortness of Breath You cannot! THIS IS A CHRONIC AND PROGRESSIVE DISEASE! Sorry! We are in this boat together. Let's work together and see if, we as a team, can find new ways to cope with what we have to work with. Somethings that don't work for you will for others, Like, PURSED LIP BREATHING."I hope this has helped". Judy
I am up to 34 pills a day and recently ask my Renal Doctor if I could stop taking some of these pills. I had chosen some I felt I could give up. He simply said, "Do you want Quality or Quantity of Life"? When you choose let me know. I also have always been a natural medicine woman but I started having problems and needed something stronger to help my problems.Diabetes. PAH, Renal insufficiency, .
Did you ever think that God created the brilliant people who did the research to make the meds that are now available to us? If you had a malignant tumor that could be removed by surgery or managed by medication, would you just choose to not treat it? One last question, what makes you think that the quality of your life will remain as it is now as the PH progresses without treatment and you can't breathe?
