    Hi Julie,

    Yes, I do think you should go back to your Doctor, there is a new Inhaler out now called  Brimica, and it is helping me at this time, I hope it will last helping me.

    Kind Regards,

    Most definitely go back and let the doctor know what's going on . Are you on any inhalers? Where I learned the most about this disease in addition to this wonderful site was from the webinars of Noah Greenspan. He also has a new Facebook support group called Ultimate Pulmonary Wellness. Quite a few UK people on it as well as Australia New Zealand Canada and US has the most members. Do keep us posted. Hopen you get your symptoms resolved. smile

    Hello Julie. Do you have electric storage heaters in your home? My breathing became so laboured that it was very frightening. Spent more than I could afford to see a respiratory consultant. After many tests and conversions on lifestyle he told me to have the storage heaters removed as they were more harmful than cigarette smoking. I followed his advice and I am slowly feeling better. Best wishes. Shirley
