    Well today I was able to see my doctor and by the time I got to see her I was in full blown not able to breathe well mode and she had me a breathe test and I did not do well on the test at all.

    She told me what I was suppose to be at, and I was like whoa this is not good. So she prescribed me an inhaler which I have used once already and that really helped me a bit.

    She told me to basically schedule my appointments in the morning which have been impossible lately, as all the morning appointments lately have been full so I am stuck with afternoon appointments, and with these triple digit temperatures, are so bad for me.

    And then I am going on vacation too and that is not a cold place but very hot and humid. So the humidity may help help me out giving me some moisture in the air, where here there is not.

    Also to schedule to see the doctor where I am covered with the county and that is not until I come back from my vacation, as they only have appointments available every 3 months. Basically anyway have them schedule some more in depth tests of my lungs and breathing.

    I am feeling the tightning of my muscles in my chest area right now and trying to do everything that I can do to relieve it, and using the inhaler as a last option.

    So I just need to take it easy as much as I can...which is hard when I have to go here and there and everywhere for my medical and psychiatric stuff.

    I'm really interested in this as I too have great problems with breathing. I am going to a pulmonary specialist soon. What is the diagnosis?

    Despite the humidity of where I am going, it will be tropical heat and I will be closer to the equator so I find it amazing how much I feel better out there. I wish I could move out there but the benefits for me is not that great financially.

    I mean if worse comes to worse, I go to the hospital out there but man I hope not. That is worse than out here LOL.

    But I highly doubt I will get worse out there, between being close to the equator and it's tropical humidity and amazingly I feel less pain out there, so we shall see.....
