Help.. Any thoughts on this would be seriously appreciated. I had a breathing test done yesterday at the hospital and the results show that my breathing has improved since I last went 6 years ago and that my lungs are very good!! I'm on spiriva, Qvar and venoltin, only since taking these have I felt any sort of better quailty of beathing/ life. And still struggle sometimes it can depend on the weather, amount of people in a room, candles, sprays, bbq,( last year I had 7 chest infections) chest infections many of them etc etc. So I don't understand, I had bloods done and going back for a scan and smutm (not sure how you spell it). I have pain and throbbing in my hands, wrists and right hip. I was so surprised but VERY relieved to hear the news that I'm now wondering.. As I've improved does this mean I stop my inhalers., don't know how I'll breath??!!! The consultant didn't say to stop. I was shocked and forgot to ask any questions!! appointment for scan etc 10th June.
