Shortness of Breath

Hi

I have Cervical lesion which is causing problems with respiratory muscle strength, this has been getting progressively worse over the past few months with my care being passed over paliative care team.

I am on a lot of medication 24 from high dose oxycodone for chest pain, to 6 nebulizers a day to try and ease the airways and make breathing, slightly easier.

To be far losing the ability to breath and having the strength slowly sapped away is scarey.

Anyone having similar problems?

No, sorry, but it sounds like you are being well looked after.

It does sound very scary and I hope you can cope hun.
