I'm in the middle of my second ever exacerbation and I feel awful. I visited my GP today and I'm on prednisone now, but I'm continously gasping for breath and i can't finish a sentence or do any physical activity. I've never been hospitalised so I can't imagine how bad it must be for those of you that have. It's very embarrassing coughing and gasping for air in a quiet office, I'd love to be able to not go in and rest, but I'm unable.
I'm just wondering what you're experience are of flare ups and whether you have any helpful advice for me.
