I don't know if anyone else gets this, but sometimes I really feel like I am coming down with a cold and then after a couple of days all the symptoms go and I am fine again.
I have it now. I'm a little more breathless than usual, want to sleep more, not as much energy and my chest feels a little tight. No cough, no runny nose, no other cold type symptoms.
After working 2 days I have nothing important planned until Tuesday, so I am hoping it just disappears again.
This isn't just since I have had emphysema either, its been a pattern my whole adult life. I estimate that in the last 20 years I have had about 3 proper colds and 1 chest infection (last year). It's all a bit weird really.
