I’ve had breathing problems for 13 years with no answers and my breathing gets worse each year. I’m getting another CT scan with IV of the chest (The VA can’t figure out what is wrong with my breathing so I have to go outside to get answers). I have to do all I can do because I don’t want my life shorten. If I walk too far I have breathing problem anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. On 9/13/15 I had to go to the VA ER because I walked my dog around a mile and a half which cause me 23 days of “hard to breath” since then I am afraid to take my dog of a walk any further than around the block. So I'm wondering where to live in the United States where I can breathe better? It should be at sea level so I can have the maximum oxygen with the cleanest air and where it's warm and close to a VA hospital. I'm thinking of Cape Coral FL. I also suffer from depression and can't make up my mine about anything but when my life is at stake I hope to make the right decision.

hi lostsoul62,

sorry about ya breathing issues. something is going on, guess ya need to find what it is quickly. how is ya ticker? is he / she ticking alright? sounds like you need a full work up. get some help with the depression. maybe a teaching hospital will be good thing. I get the feeling that there is something happening, that is being caused by a trigger or something to the effect. respiratory physician would be my advice. keep strong.

Lostsoul I don't know the answers so I will just give you what I do know.You don't want to move to the coast.I have severe COPD to go with my vascular disease and lived on the coast of Texas for 3 years when I was in the early stages of my problems about 10 years ago.Some days I would breathe great and the humidity would show up and it would feel like someone had there arms around my chest squeezing.Very hard to breathe.In days past they would send the lungers to Arizona where the humidity is low and air is good.I hope you find the answers you are seeking.Take care
