I've dealt with odd breathing issues for the last 12 years. They labled it asthma but it's never really fit the typical asthma symptoms. I wonder now if it's from babesia or bartonella.
I have found that caffeine helps me when I get short of breath. Is that OK with your protocol? I usually get a green tea or a coffee, it will help open up the airways. For me, it's worked better then the inhaler.
