    I may have been dealt a bad hand, but at least I'm still playing with a full deck. ( most of the time anyway).

    I am finally feeling better.
    After this episode of not being able to breathe, I have decided, I would take my pain over not breathing. At least with pain, I can take some pills and feel a little better, but this
    not not being able to take a good breath, is very frightning. It looks like you guys were right, it just took a second round of antibiotics, to make me better.
    Thanks for always being here.

    this comment suggest that you have a possability of housing bugs.
    i would reccommend talking to your doctor , dentist to find where the problem lies.
    as i said, for me it was sinuses.
    I had no other signs to suggest.
    it was only with a doctor looking up there that we found the problem.
    i also know others that have throat issues. they breed the germs there and need medical intervention.

    Amen, sister!

    It is definitely something to follow-up with your rheumy & pcp about. My docs are reasonably certain the lupus was attacking my lungs the last few years (but who can be certain of anything in lupus?). The pulmonologist I first saw for my lung issues a couple years ago was certain I'd had asthma since childhood, due to the condition of my lungs (after a breathing function test), but I hadn't had breathing issues until my fifties. As steve mentions, there can be other causes of breathing troubles, and that would include your blood, since your blood (with the hemoglobulin) is what "translates" the oxygen & carbon dioxide from/to your lungs & body cells.

    I will mention it to my doctor, but I think my problem is working with the public, I am exposed to hundreds of people and their germs. All that while on MTX, that is not a good mixture.

    Thank you.
    I have had a huge bood test done last week, I should get the results today. Like I have said, I also have asthma, but this time the inhaler did not help.
