Most of xmas break in bed de to chest infection . I have severe copd.
I cough in bouts, mucus catches in my throat anf it starts. It rarely clears but seems to get higher and all but completely block my airways. Distress and panic are an understatement. I am fairly self controlled and irde it out best I can, steadying what breaths I can get at a regular pace until it eases.
I manage this during the day, but at nightimes and first thing on waking my breathing is at its worst and a session then feels like the end. Saline breathing boiling a jugful of water with half cup f salt and twel over head eases breathing but no mucus freed.
GP never heard of acapella and has referred me to copd specialist. Might be months away.
Feeling grim. Try to hide how bad I feel from family.
Albas oils? Friars balsam? anything?
