i have had COPD for approx 10yrs maybe longer (i am 69) but have always tried to not let it get the better of me & alter my life too much-my doctor gave me a budisimide (powdered inhaler) to replace my "brown" one a few yrs ago & along with the blue reliever,nebuliser when flare ups occur along with antibiotics & steroids i,ve managed ok-however the last 12 months i have been under a lot of stress,mainly being the carer for my husband who is not a good patient to say the least & i walk on egg shells most days to keep the peace-this i,m sure has affected my COPD - i have concentrated more on him than myself,not eaten properly,taken over all chores etc & now i,m trying to get on my feet again-i have been trying to see wether there are any vitimins that would help & although vit d,e,c,a & coq10 have been mentioned no daily measurment has been mentioned-has anyone found vitimins to be helpful if so in what dosage ? i,ve also thought that i would give acupunture a try even if just to stop the anxiety i,m always feeling which i know does not help my breathing-when i am in the house i am constantly anxious with pains here there & everywhere yet when i can buck myself up to go out for a few hours the "pains" go !! has anyone any advice please-at the moment i am just getting over a bout of gastric entiritus & a chest infection but am getting better & want to try & improve things as much as i can - thankyou in advance
