Flare up -

Flare up -

Hot summers and humidity hear in Durban, South Africa right now.
I use my inhalers like I should so this came as a shoke to me, scary. On Monday my chest felt so tight and I was battling to breath it has since cooled down a little from the rain we have had so today it much better but still braethless. I also have chronic sinus and with change in seasons the last two weeks have been terrible with that. Could this have triggered off "Flare up"

Thank you in advance.

I have emphysema and my breathing is getting worse

I have 3 inhalers.i had lung function tests done on Friday then saw my specialist.He said even tho my lungs are damaged it's my airways that have narrowed due to scarring so there's nothing that will help me,i.e. different inhalers ,as it's not the lungs causing the problem.He said sorry there's nothing else I can do.

Is there a correlation between stages and groups?

Is there a correlation between stages and groups?

I was reading www.copd.com, specifically the title "COPD progresses over time, but you can be proactive". In it, it says there are 4 stages of COPD. Without any references, it lists four groups, based on Number of exacerbations in the last 12 months and the number of exacerbation resulting in hospitalizations in the last 12 months. My questions really is, does the four (4) groups have any correlations to the 4 stages? Only difference I saw was the stages were… read more

Is it normal to want to rush things that you want done because you want them done before you are dead, with copd

Is it normal to want to rush things that you want done because you want them done before you are dead, with copd

I need to finish writing 3 more books, make sure my daughters coming of age is completed and ready, getting my casket payed for before my spirit passes over. there are days even with o2 I still wonder if my eyes will open back up and my chest move. I do not talk to my family they would just worry and I do not need pity. They can not fix it why bother them?

Bipap

Bipap

Hello everyone, I'm sorry I haven't been on for awhile but this has been a very difficult time for me. Just taking one day at a time. I do have a question though. Is anyone interested in a bi pap machine or nebulizer machines? I have two of each ( one bi pap and one nebulizer machines are new). If you are interested please let me know. Thank you and wishing all a blessed night.
