over the past year or more ive become more and more breathless. even simple tasks as unloading washing machine, walking down to ginnie hutch to fed them, walking upstairs I loose my breathe.
I walk my 2 dogs and start off at a brisk pace (as im tring to loose weight) and slow down half way as by then im gasping for air. my legs are painful and become heavier than usual. I am borderline anemic but am on iron tablets daily(been anemic since I was 18 but told lupus causes anemia?). I do have fibromyalgia too. I know lupus and fibro run hand in hand and given me 8 years of cronic fatigue (not to mention the millions of other symtoms we all have too)
I walk with my mouth open as cannot breathe deep enough when moving. its embarising at work as my muscles burn as soon as I do any lifting (small crates of produce or push milk dollies) my colleagues are amazed at how unfit I am as they do not understand lupus or fibro.
ive had a chest xray in march and all ok as ive not heard anything from GP. any advice would be gratefully received as im really fed up of feeling 400 years old and not 41,
