Welcome to HW CA-Lynn!!
I'm sorry to hear that you have COPD and Asthma. I do hope that your treatment is going well.
I did check out the COPD site today but I do not think that is my problem. Last October, I had the
Spirometry test(didn't like that but I passed it). The Oximetry(98%) and an ex-ray(mainly okay).
Stress and Anxiety for certain can cause many conditions like the "gasping for breathe" that I have maybe and I've had way more than my share of stress this past year. I've had that symptom for about
6 years. I've had a stressful life like most. But the other symptoms, I don't think are stress related.
Weight has never been a problem for me(lack of, "Yes".), except this past December I was put on a higher dose of Pred in order to deal with excess pain, stress, etc for the holidays since my Mom was at our place and other company to look after. I've been noting that the weight has been accumulating even now with the tapering. I'm 138 lbs now. Not happy about
that. At least before when I was on MTX and a higher dose of Pred., I didn't gain anything. Not so now, without the MTX. Now I have to take more Insulin. :/
Anyways, thank you for your ideas and again Welcome!!. :)
*I forgot to add that my Asthma is quite mild now in comparison to the 1990's.
