    My God...on top of everything I have gotten and been through the last year...now my lungs feel full and I have wheezing getting stronger by the month.


    I can't believe it. 55 and never had this before.

    Diagnosed with asthma a few days ago. I had also been telling the doctors for months that every breath I take feels bone dry and very cold down into my throat and lungs. They would always dismiss it until a few started hearing my wheezing.


    What the heck could this be? Is my whole body just shutting down? Can asthma go away?

    I have developed so many body problems since all this started Dec. 10th, 2005. What a nightmare.

    I'm actually feeling as if I better start planning for you know what. I am sure not getting better in all this time... only worse!

    I have that dry feeling in my lungs, it is causing me to cough and wheeze. I am "recovering" from laryngitis, but I have now had a persistant cough for months that is the same.

    Hot/warm water seems to help me. It may not help but it might be worth a try?

    since the summer, i have been developing either asthma or bronchitis and it seems to be getting worse with the winter here.

    if i find any remedies i will pass them on.

    i have read about astragalus helping bronchitis, but have not tried yet.

    thanks

    i just read your post in another thread about your reaction to Levaquin. that could be a herx reaction which actually a sign that the antibiotics is working.

    sometimes when antibiotics work, they kill off the bacteria and it causes a quick reaction that makes you feel even sicker.

    that could be a sign that there is some bacterial issues involved in your condition.

    some that are related to CFS are Lyme and Mycoplasma.

    for Lyme you need to see a lyme specialist called LLMD (Lyme Literate MEdical Doctor) and you can get a referal to a doc near you at:

    www.lymenet.org

    check the "flash discussion" section.

    also for Mycoplasma you could look at the Mashall Protocol which uses low dose antibiotics over a long term.
