Ok since every time. I go to the A&E and some genius puts those finger probe thingys on my fingers and declares"there you go 96per cent!"O2 your not short of breath,you just feel that...then I say "yeah but that probe does not tell you really my blood O2,I mean i could have more carbon dixode or monoxcide or whatever(feel like screaming)then sometimes they agree and do arterial blood gases,(from the wrist ouch!) and yes its low,then despite feeling short if breath,I feel yes i prooved it now where is my oxigen?Nope despite being 8.86 PCO2 they still kick me out!.with a note to the "CHEST TEAM"..which continues a cycle of CPEX tests,MRI,CT,ECHO etc.now ive taken matters into my own hands and since I cannot get an oxygen tank(only doctors can perscribe it)Ive decided to move my bed near to my balcony put a wooly hat on and sleep sideways so my head is actually stuck out in the air(just hope pigeons dont poop on my head).So if your walking around SOHO London and you see a red christmas hat sticking out from a roof,dont think its an early decoration,its me trying to breath...
