  • 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
