Never experienced what you described, been using Ambulitory oxygen for some time.

Where you expecting to much from using oxygen, it's only used to maintain your O2 levels at an acceptable level to avoid damage to major organs rather than reverse the effects of breathlessness, though it will help.

Despite using oxygen you stil have to pace your self, going of you post you may have,over done things slightly.


thank stone i had though that myself keep forget that it to help keep my oxygen levels up not stop me getting out of breath and i did go up the stairs very quick
