Hello everyone, hoping someone can help me. Sometimes when I have a breathless bout, even though after using inhalers etc, and become less breathless, my lungs seem get confused and don't relax again like they should. It doesn't always happen. When it does happen it seems as though I'm having to take every breath deliberately,it's very wearing, I was awake hours last night with it. I'm not talking about what happens when you get into a hyperventilating mode (very scary). I try the pursed lips breathing and the breathing in and breathing out longer techniques, but nothing seems to help. Eventually, they do start to relax a bit, but does anyone know what is going on when this happens? Sadie
