Cannot breathe in after minimal exercise. Confused as told problem is with breathing out in this condition. Spirometry showed, I think, only mild airways obstruction but I gasp for breath after walking very short distance. Sats were 92 at rest and frankly,at rest I feel absolutely fine. Problem is when I'm not sitting still ie stairs, getting dressed/washed etc. Can anyone explain why. Respiratory nurse at hospital very vague and not really explained it..As I said CT shows severe emphysema. Symptoms have definitely deteriorated since diagnosis and I struggle on a daily basis.
