All day today I have struggled with my breathing, my shoulders are up with every breath and the pain in my chest is excruciating however my sats are 91%. I'm obviously taking in enough oxygen so why the breathlessness? When I came home from hospital in June they gave me a COPD rescue course of steroids and antibiotics which I have just finished as I was pretty sure I had an infection but I am feeling worse now than when I started the course. I thought I could hold on until I see the COPD nurse at the beginning of next month but this feels awful. My husband says he knows that I am not great as I have hardly spoken all day. How can I feel so bad but have such a good oxygen level? I'd be grateful for any advice. Gail
