I was given 2 to 4 months to live, sent home on oxygen. I refused meds. That was 6 years ago. I pushed myself until I cried. Within one year, I was jogging. Today I mountain climb. Never give up.
I feel very fatigued, Dizzy and short of breath most/All days. Especially after trying to do something for an hour or so the day before. I have been like this for 2.5-3 years. My pulmonologist is not treating me for it just making me do more tests with cardiologist. I live in Oklahoma and the Humidity is making it worse. I can't work
It starts when I wake up (I am on CPAP) and gets worse when I shower. If I bend over to tie my shoes or pick anything of any weight up I feel like I am going to… read more
I live in Canada and now that winter has arrived I have noticed it really hard to take a deep breath or walk very far outside in the cold air. I am not on oxygen is there anything that helps when you are outside?
I'm learning that even the slightest stress causes me to get exhausted. Life is full of stress without even trying. I struggle to find that middle ground in handling the stress that normal life hands me and still be able to function. I am able to keep basic cleaning done and grocery shopping with my husband's help. But some 6days that gets to be too much when unexpected stress pops up.
I have chest pain, mostly on the left side, and shortness of breath with slight movement. Sometimes it goes away in a few minutes but it usually stays several hours. Sometimes I wake up with it. Does anyone else experience this? If so, how do you manage it?
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.
I was on Symbicort and Spiriva for years. I tried to get on a clinical trial for Trelegy 2 years ago but could not blow 25% lung function. Without meds I blow 13%. My pulmanary Dr. was part of the team and when it came on market I started using it. I LOVE IT! ! time in morning and I breath easy all day long. I still run low on o2 during strenuous activity, but I don't feel like a bear is squeezing me. In march I started on [[treatment:Sildenafil:59b7098bff29502bb8a490a5]] and feel I improved my… read more
After doing some research these pains are related to PH. My PH team said its not part of PH. I did my own research and found three articles referencing this. A recent study done on lab rats in Spain and another more detailedwrite up as well as an article from about 6 years ago stating this was an effect of PH. So the cure to getting rid of this side effect is to increase your probiotics. Start eating Activia once a day and over the counter probiotics. I am so glad the knife has stoped… read more
what if O2 saturation drops below 90? Stop? Keep exercising anyway? Reduce intensity?
