What really gets to me is the lack of energy. I used to be so active and now I have to rest between activities. I have to do everything in stages. I am on oxygen during the night with my cpap. I am doing better with the meds, but my breathing is hard at times. I don't know how I am supposed to feel physically which is also a concern. I feel so much different now than I did before I got sick. Can anyone give me some wisdom? Thank you.
I have the same problem. I'm still working but sometimes I'm so tired I can't do anything at work and my upper back hurts. I have my grandchildren help out a lot at home which, I appreciate. I stay at home mostly . Grocery shopping has gotten to be a chore. I take spiriva, albuterol, and ipratroplum bromide and albuterol sulfate combination but my chest is still tight with chest pain. Is there anything else I can do or will it contine to get worse?
hi. I am about the same. Every time I get sick, It takes me longer to spring back. My family helps me out a lot too. I feel so blessed to have them. I have noticed I have more anxiety since I developed this. Do you have that problem? I know I am doing better since I went through physical rehab. I am now in the maintence program. It keeps me active and it really helps to meet others who are going through the same thing. I go twice a week and I am excited to see everyone. You might check to see if something like that is available in your area. They also have a better breathers club that takes in about 4 times a year. We get information about many subjects. It is really cool. Take care and God Bless.
