Hello there. After a lazy holiday away and a few housebound rainy days lately, I have come to the startling conclusion that my brisk daily dog walks (2 x 1 hours) are actually making my chest very much worse.
My diagnosis is Lupus/UCTD with resp muscle weakness & small Airways Disease. I'm 50, slim & I love being out and about but there is no doubt that the less I do, the less aggravation, coughing and subsequent respiratory fatigue I get.
Should I be doing less exercise? Does anyone else here find this? I find walking and fresh air so mentally therapeutic.
Thanks for reading. Clare x
