Something similar happened to be. I was SOB and I thought it was Babs returning. In reality I was extremely dehydrated which caused the SOB.
Your case was much worse and I am glad you got help.
If the mention of Texas meant---- was that the state where they won't treat Lyme?------- No, it's Oregon. I've never lived in Texas so maybe they're as bad---- but how it can be worse than OR or WA I really can't fathom. :)
Wow. I am so glad you went to the ER.
I haven't been that bad, but I did get the allergies and asthma misdiagnoses, which led to inhalers, prednisone, and an ER visit for shortness of breath. Thanks to the prednisone and horrible asthma medications, I began a spectacular decline with a gazillion new symptoms.
There are times when my lungs feel sore, like they've been working too hard and are dry and irritated. I drink lots of water, which really helps. Sometimes my chest muscles are sore from working so hard to get satisfying breaths. I find lying in my recliner or on my back makes it easier.
My breathing and my spleen dictate how fast I can go with my treatment. I am really looking forward to being able to breath without working at it.
Realyl sorry to hear this happèened to glad to know you got through it.
This is vey good advice to consider that not EVERYTHING we get should always be blamed on Lyme.
I've made that mistake in the past as well - it's good to be re-reminded from time to time to bear in mind other things can hapen.,
Especially now I am becoming more "mature".
Thanks for the data on WA and OR. I didn't realize they are in the denier's club.
