I’m finding air hunger to be one of the most difficult things to deal with at the moment. Newly on supplementary oxygen but when I’m having an uncontrollable coughing session I begin panting through my mouth. It takes a while for me to be able to do the pursed lip breathing and what seems like hours (probably about 5 minutes) before I can really get back to normal.
My doctor has prescribed low dose liquid morphine for this but only three times a day. These episodes happen 6 or 7 times a day. Not coping well at all!
