Hi folks, having been told I'm clear of infection after many weeks and a clear chest x ray, I am feeling a lot of inflamation and my breathing is very very difficult. The smallest movements and I have to stop and get my breath back. i never felt so bad since diagnosis 10 years ago. I was prescribed 50mg of Prednisoline a day since Sunday but it has made no difference. The COPD nurse today advised 30mg a day now for a week. Is it normal for inflamation to last so long without starting to feel a bit better when using steroids? Thanks
