hi everyone, Ive not writen a post before but i do read a lot of yours (just that has given me support). But after my latest diagnosis Im not sure what I can do to help myself.
I had bad pneumonia in September for two months, (it really scared me and i immediatly quit smoking) as i was recovering they sent me to a specialist who said i had late onset asthma although he thought i was young for this at 36. he gave me a brown and blu inhaler, he sent me for tests and it came back that i had allergies (which they cant test for) and 'sensative airways' so they are keeping me on the inhalers.
so my problem now is this, i still cough at times, but i dont know if this is due to still recovering from pneumonia, stopping smoking, or the allergies. is there anything that you lot do that help with the breathlessness and coughing.
i also wake up alot, so where do you feel you sleep better, a dry warm room? an open window?
I also wanted to know what excerise everyone prefers, i dont like swimming but i need to start building up my fitness levels, before i was ill i could walk for hours, but now getting to the top of the stairs is a journey ha,
sorry to ask so many questions, iv found it all to be quite overwhelming, but iv gone from never being still, to never wanting to get out of bed lol so just any tips to easier breathing would be great xx
