For the last couple of weeks, I have been having constant low-grade symptoms. I would say on a scale of 1-5 that it hovers around a 1, sometimes a 2. It is a constant light pressure on my chest and getting short of breath doing simple things like trying to clean, going up the stairs, etc. During classes, when I teach, if it goes over an hour my voice gets weaker and weaker.
My peak flow is averaging 545-550 (This is the time I usually feel these kinds of symptoms) and I find that I am taking my relief, Meptin Air, at least 3-5 times a day. Been watching my breathing and it is usually slow and steady until I do something. Sometimes it seems like I have to remind myself to breathe! I'm constantly doing breathing exercises throughout the day as I think of it, too. SpO2 is hovering at 97-98 and my heart rate is around 90 unless I start moving (that means typing, too), then it bumps up to 120.
Any ideas of how to manage it. I don't feel like it is worth going to my doctor, especially with the end of year coming on and them being closed. Just keep taking my emergency and breathing and take it easy? I am reluctant to take my relief more than five times---heck, five times seems like too much to me. Still working on that. I know I can take it a bit more, and even more frequently, but I tend to wait a couple of hours to see how it goes before bothering to try again. I take my daily religiously, though.
