I am well aware of the biological aspect of COPD and what it does to your lungs and have also mastered the inhalers (how, when and why to take) but this morning I did something that has completely baffled me. I took my two puffs of Symbicort first thing this morning and plodded my way through the next few hours slowly since I am in the middle of a chest infection. I remembered that I hadn't taken my Spiriva which I normally take five minutes after the Symbicort so for some unknown reason, decided to mini tiptoe my way to the bedroom whilst laughing and joking with my son. I arrived in the bedroom and was completely fine, no breathlessness whatsoever which is baffling because usually just walking there leaves me gasping, never mind when I'm struggling with an infection. Given that I have very little muscle in my legs I was amazed I could even mini tiptoe at all ! This condition baffles me at times; when I should be breathless I'm not and when I least expect it, I'm doubled over trying to catch my breath.
