I was diagnosed late. Moderate to Severe I was told. I went to the Dr. not feeling well. He said I was in a flare up. Gave me predizone took me off regular maintenance drug Anora and told me to use albuteral 4/5 times a day for a month then return. The predizone only last 6 days. Well this is the first flare up I have had since I was diagnosed one year ago. It's bad. The albuteral makes me visibly shake. I don't know a lot about this disease so I am asking for help from you all that I have learned stuff from just reading on here. My oxygen reading was 96 so I guess I am breathing okay although it feels more labored then usual. Is that part of the flare up and how long do the flare ups usually last? Thanks for any help. Hope you all are feeling okay. (((Hugs))) Linda

I may have figured out how to get back into this site and participate and hopefully learn more about managing COPD. (Maybe I should be trying to joining a computer support group)Note: I have joined a "Better Breathers" group that meets once a month in Hayward California. If you have such a thing in your area, I strongly suggest you check-it-out.
Hello, I just joined this group due to my problem with COPD I was hoping to meet people that are going through the same problem that I have or maybe been there. I just need someone to talk to that can understand!
