I posted a few weeks ago as was struggling to breathe and felt very different from usual asthma and bronch. Just couldn’t breathe in and had been getting worse and worse. ENT referral obtained but need to update you.
Saturday I was so bad an ambulance was called. Two weeks of steroids and regular inhalers doing nothing. They were completely puzzled. Pulse and BP fine, oxygen levels good- just couldn’t breathe. No sharp pains just concrete block on chest feeling. Left me resting as hospital means higher risk of infection and I started thinking. What has changed in the past month since this started. Well I started taking high dose Omega 3 capsules. Quick internet search showed they can cause severe shortness of breath in some people! Wow! Stopped them immediately and apart from lungs feeling raw from all the drugs and the effort of the past month my breathing is nearly normal. I never considered for a moment something like that could cause such a problem.
