If your breathing go's funny when lay flat i would regard it as medical emergency.

Hello david, it must be horrid to have these symptoms and not really understand what the problem is. I hope the new tablets help you and that the tests you have to have help the consultant to get to the bottom of it.

Feel better soon.
