Ish sats since the start, but fairly up and down with stmpk, so this is just a bit of a. 'How asthma works' kind of post. Basically I've been stuck in costa for a few days, and had low-ish sats on and off, fluctuating with symptoms, going back to normal after nebs/mg/hydro type stuffs. Since getting over the acute stuff my o2 has been consistently 93% or lower, dropping to high 80s when I move around. Thing is, my breathing feels perfectly reasonable, certainly felt worse than this without my sats dropping. I don't think I have a chest infection (had cxray this am and noone has said anything) and I can't think why I'd feel normal whilst needing o2. I deffo notice when I take it off, and for things like showering I need to take it, but its just generally SOB, not wheezy and tight...it just seems a bit strange to me, wondered if anyone had any thoughts? I want it to stop asap, I hate o2!! Thanks guys xxx
