I was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis on Wednesday, December 17, 2014.  I am still trying to get a better understanding of what I have.  All I know is that it will be a terrible death.  There is no cure.  I do not know which stage.  I begin having trouble breathing a few months ago.  I was told I had COPD.  No problem...I can manage that.  "Right.&quo...

I have severe COPD. On continuous O2. To do the simplest things I need 6- 8 liters and with that can only do things in short burst having to rest every several minutes to catch my breathe. I wake up feeling depressed with the fighting to breathe all the time. I am on maximum inhalers. Does any-one out there know of anything else that may help. I think otherwise I am close to end stage COPD and tha...

My mom was suffering from back pain and after three different doctors told it was a pulled muscle plus a 40 lb weight loss sent went into the ER. It was only a matter of hours she was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. She underwent surgery to place a rod beside her right femur because the bone was about to shatter due to a tumor. Then a few days later they removed a tumor from her occipital lop...

I am wondering if anyone has any side effects from using this? I started a week ago and I feel horrible. The Doc wanted me to do it three times a day and I haven't even been able to tolerate it more then once. All kinds of weird symptoms but not sure if they are "normal". If you have used this devise or one similar, I think mine is an Acapella did you experience any side effects? ...

I'm on nighttime O2. Despite having an inline water trap, nothing I do seems to prevent moisture from condensing in the O2 line connected to my concentrator. It happens around 4AM. After several week's of experimentation, I've decided that it is because I keep my bedroom really cool; at at about 4AM, the temp gets down to about 50 degrees F. Because the concentrator is in a warmer room...

I am new to this.  When I was a teen in Illinois, I had the flu one time that didn't heal fully.  Being a farmer back then, I didn't think anything about running out of breath.  I joined the military in '85.  Went through physical, got sworn in, and then sent to basic training.  Seemed like I was in and out of the Dr's office more than I was training. ...

On November 26, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) proposed a new national ambient air quality standard for ozone, the most widespread air pollutant, and one of the most dangerous. The standards would set the official limit on how much ozone pollution is too much, and help inform the public when the air in their community is dangerous to breathe.
