Hello Everyone. I am curious if anyone can help me with a question about lung sensations. I had never struggled breathing until COVID. But since the infection, I have had a number of issues breathing and odd sensations.
The most disturbing is hard to describe. It is almost as if my breathing has felt thin, kind of like I was somehow at altitude or something. It’s not exactly breathlessness, but more like each breath is not entirely satisfying. My O2 sats are normal 96-98, though I do also feel that my lung capacity has somehow been reduced cause I used to always be 99-100 before the infection. I also was curious if this might be a nerve thing. I also get burning and pain sensations and sometimes it feels like my chest will almost spasm, but it seems to happen somewhat at random and my rescue inhaler doesn’t necessarily stop it.
Any insight or similar feeling someone might have would be tremendously helpful!
