Hi try gargling every time you use your inhalers and drink plenty of fluids take care .


Hi my breathing is bad to day. Just started my prednisolone. And I stopped smoking 2 years ago. Stopping smoking . Only slows down the progression . It is normal to still feel breathless . Try breathing through your nose with your mouth shut


I recommend checking out the Buteyko breathing method.( breathing in through the nose).This is getting results!I have IPF and find it helps me.Nose breathing triggers 30 beneficial processes in the body!


Well done for stop smoking. Have you thought about going to see your practice nurse at Gp surgery . Have spirometer test this will tell you your lung function now and the compare results a few month down the line by staying on the12 week nhs plan. Good luck
