I don't breathe well. My allergy/asthma doctor gives me regular breathing tests, which I flunk each and every time. In fact, the last three I've gone progressively downward, and I'm breathing at around 52%. Inhalers don't help, not even at the breathing test, only raising my score 2-3%. I've had to leave this doctor because she is convinced we just have to find the right inhaler. After 6 different kinds in one year (and a fortune gone to the pharmacy), I'm just not willing to work with her anymore.
Here's the run down:
I have trouble breathing while lying down.
If anything is on top of me while lying down, gets worse.
If my head is tilted back lying down, all air seems cut off.
I get winded with a single flight of stairs.
Extreme cold and extreme heat make breathing harder.
I tend to breathe very shallow.
Breathing tests, progressively worse
Chest Xray (Stand up)- nothing notable (I'm told)
This has been going on for nearly two years-- please help!
