I have shortness of breath on a pretty consistent basis.
At the height of my illness, just when i was diagnosed, it was more of a:
I forget to breathe thing.
That is how I described it. I completely forget to breathe or the impulse to breathe is gone.
Over time, the impulse to breathe is better, getting better and so I think that's a plus on the brain recovery.
Yet, I still have this shortness of breath I never had when I was "healthy" (that means living with lyme and company's slow progression over the course of decades undiagnosed). But still, I ran 13 miles training for a half marathon and seemed to do okay.
It seems a combination of the impulse to breathe being forgotten and shortness of breath from
When I take mepron, this gets worse, historically. I cannot vacum half a room without running out of breath when I am on the mepron.
Still, it is a constant problem I find that really needs to be addressed.
Has anyone had this shortness of breath resolved over time? And does it sound like a pure babesia problem? I supposed it could be a nerve problem related to the lyme. Or something else.
My sternum feels like its about to crack in half at this point, it has become weak over the duration of treating for over two years and the subesequent inactivity.
At the peak of pain prior to abx, I had air hunger, shortness of breath, couldn't take in enough air even though I tried.
If I laid flat on my back to try and relieve pain or pressure, it felt like an elephant was sitting on top of me. I literally felt that I might die while doing so. That everything was going to stop working.
That said, I believe that it air hunger and other symptoms for me was babs. I think you are herxing and the air hunger "out of breath" symptoms will worsen.
I am so sorry you are dealing with this. It's very frightening.
