So sorry to hear you have had a bad few weeks. I find I need to exercise more when I get short of breath. I really noticed it when I became more breathless after Christmas because I had been inactive over the Christmas period. I am only able to a bit and go to the local gym, as the cold air we've been having makes it worse if I go for a walk, outside. You will find helpful information on managing breathlessness on the BLF website. I hope you feel better soon.
