I hope and pray your clinic goes well. I have never had a spirometry test but I think that's going to be included in my breathing tests in a little over two weeks.

God bless.

Without sounding dramatic. The first time I had the chest pain in October. I thought I was having a heart attack at 30 yr old. I had never heard if it before until the dr told me about it. Xx

No I hadn’t it don’t sound very nice. It’s one up on me x

I asked the nurse on Friday. At first Pyrex dishes fell of a cage at work and hit my chest then foot, and I thought that caused the inflammation, but she thinks I’ve had a viral infection, and that left me with the inflammation. Xx

That’s not so good hun. Hope the can sort it out soon. I’ve got my peak flow back up to normal. Never had a great sleep last night and still a bit sore, but finally seem to be getting back to some kind of normality still got another 2 weeks off, being on the steroids for 3 weeks is what I needed. Just hope when I am back at work, it stays settled. Still feeling exhausted though. Doesn’t take much for me to feel tired just now. Xx

Glad u starting to feel a bit normal again hopefully they sort me out soon had enough of it all now and I’m with u on the sleep side don’t know how I’m still standing to b honest u take care x

Ask for baclofen. It’s a muscle relaxant. I’ve been given them to help with sleep. And the do help, I feel they’ve helped my breathing too. Xx
