I’m starting to piece together my lupus symptoms. I say piece together as with the fluctuations in levels and occurrences of symptoms I sometimes forget how it was the last time if that makes sense.
So I’ve had this issue with my breathing where I can’t catch a full breath if that makes sense.. I’ve kind of normalised it but recently I almost make a noise like a heavy sigh when I need to get the air. I’ve just remembered that this has happened before and seems to coincide with more aching, burning muscles and increased fatigue etc
I have had my heart checked and there is a slight mitrial valve issue but deemed so minor ai don’t need it checking again for 2 years so it can’t be that.
Brain fog I’m realising also means I might not give specialists the full picture or piece it together myself as although I was diagnosed a few years ago I think these type of illness are a long game learning experience.
Does anyone else have this issue with the breath?
