Short of Breath

Does anyone experience shortness of breath?

 

susan333 - November 11

I have suffered from shortness of breath for 12 months now and it is driving me crazy. I feel like I cannot get enough oxygen to my head. I have found futher details on the following sites: kettering.edu "The Final Frontier - the human brain", also on this website and on the fmaware website. Do a google search on breathing and fibromyalgia.

Unfortunately, I have not found the solution but somethings I find that help are: learing to breathe properly (this pushes the pain barrier though); massage to ribcage/chest and Baclofen taken at night time releases my muscles and I can breather again for a few hours in morning and I guess while I am sleeping.

I am now considering getting an oxygen tank for short-term relief and to boost my oxygen levels.

Yes, I get winded very easily. My doc says I need to exercise more. Easier said than done when you have FMS.

Isn't funny that doctors tell you to do the exact same thing THAT BROUGHT YOU TO SEE HIM/HER IN THE FIRST PLACE!
