Well i could talk about paradoxical breathing but i don't know what that is or a could talk about emphysemious bullea and it nothing like emphysema but best starting at the beginning and my visit to COPD Nurse
Well seen COPD nurse and i had lots to say and questions
A walk in and nurse says she is changing my medication shock and awe so i explane what is wrong with me and am under lung hospital and tell her a would prefer it if she would not change my medication.
Nurse asks me to blow in that tube and says my sats are all good Now thats a surprise like reall.
she must of thought a had smokers cough
If only that was the case anyway she says she is going to change my Qvar medication as that is for asthma and will be doing nothing
I point out my meds i recived from my lung specialist for my condition and told her about the various misdiagnose i have had based on my sats.
To be fair she was nice ad listend so a told the nurse the Qvar is to cut down on mucus i have been producing only and it seems to help.
I also went on about my horrid year and a half and how i would not like to repeat various trips to A+E frequenting heart and lung wards ...nurse did agree to get my notes CT Scan results and to chat to me and lung specialist about my lung condition heart problems befoure she did anything with my medication.
Then a raised few health issues i had 1 being my Belly winding me when i bend down which is intresting as i hope its nothing but my emphysematous bullea crushing my lung a can live with.
But i thought it was wise to ask as it could be pre courser for heart failular ... dont get me wrong am not worrying or a drama queen but is alleays better to be safe than sorry.
I asked nurse as my blood pressure was and is 135/95 which ordinary would be ok if i did not have heart problems emphysematous bullea or brochititisasis but as i have is and needs watching as am in PreHypertension group with those blood pressure readings.
Like really dont i have loads on my plate already
Then 2 i asked about why i have been waking up shaking "like when your cold" but am not nurse thought it was over use of Blue Inhaler but i only use that once or twice a day.
It could be something quite inocent like Blood Gloucose rush or striode induced type 2 diabetes .
But i checked my Blood Glucose and it was 7.8 which i was told by nurse is ok as i have been using steriod inhalers.
Or it could be something quite grim like my hormones on rampage but as long as i keep me eye out for unusual bumbs skin blemishes al be fine.
Then we was talking about how GP / practice would not give me repeat prescription for my 7% hypertonic sialine.. nurse to me thay only give it to those who are frail old as its used for End Stage COPD and is addictive that i find hard to belive its addictive.
