Coming up to a year since I first noticed being short of breath. At first I put it down to stress after making the decision to get my beloved 16 year old dog put down, I loved him with all my hear t& I was absolutely heartbroken & so distressed, however , as I learned to live with my grief my breathing didn't improve so off to gp's where I was dx with moderate copd. After a lot of tooing (is that a word lol) & froing we eventually got my meds right & safe to say I have had a wonderful summer, camping , walking, weddings, christenings, Rhodes, bbqs & breathing a lot better.
However , now we have reached Autumn, a year since I felt bad & it's back. The Central heating is on for a few hours a day & yesterday I picked a whole wheelie bin of leaves up & as well as my preventers I am hitting my ventolin again. Using my neil-med sinus rinse again daily as my nose feels like it has closed...don't know if it is the falling leaves or the central heating, suspect the heating as I have been taking anti-histamines since the spring & beconase....Anyone else feel the same or any advice friends
