Well can we dredge that up again? Jist was I had pneumonia twice in a year with back to back bronchitis after the pneumonia the 2nd time, so they sent me to a pulm, diagnosed asthma. Did a flurry of stuff (some kind of strong powdery inhaler, steroids, etc.), got religion about cleaning with a roomba, and got it under control. Thing is, now I'm fighting some kind of bug. And I don't want to be paranoid, but I'm not sure I'm doing it right.
So normally my breath, with the peak flow meter, is 530-550. I've even seen 570. It wasn't like that when I was sick, obviously. It was half that or less. But as we got it under control, that's what it got to. And I work out, weight lifting, which is a lot of deep breathing. I think it may have gone up recently from that.
Anyways, it started as an occasional cough, added headache Friday and Saturday. I did the steam room Saturday, trying to kill viruses and just help. Today my energy is pretty good but I've been needing to use my inhaler. I think my lungs are getting a little worse. I'm coughing more now. And I don't understand because overall I'm hardly sick. It's like it just picked my lungs, kwim?
I did my inhaler 10 minutes ago and I actually sound WORSE now than I did. And most of the day it was under control.
Well that's why I'm coughing. It's down to 390-430.
So now I don't know what to do. I took some mucinex. I can monitor it. I mean I'll I've got is a runny nose and my breathing is going down.
