ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
Weeks at a time I feel like I am suffocating. It's very difficult to breathe. The problem is that I can feel like this for some time & out of no where I can feel just fine. There is no consistency of my symptoms which my doctor has witnesses and doesn't understand how. If you are sick then your sick. You're just not ok one day and then sick the next day or even within minutes or hours. This is my case. Oxygen helps but for so long, yet my oxygen levels are normal. All test & exams never show anything. My doctor is puzzled, he doesn't know what else to do. I was getting over 20 bronchoscopy a yr due to mucus plugs getting stuck in my lungs. I spend most of my days in bed or on my recliner with my oxygen. Inhalers & breathing treatments do not help. This is not asthma. No one knows what it is or how to help me breathe. I have tired the Mayo clinic in Jacksonville, FL and in Arizona. No one can give me answers.
