Feeling clearer

Oct 18, 2009 - 0 comments

The lungs were feeling rather congested since Wednesday and now today have been coughing it up again. Did no coughing for a few days there, guess the mucous was accumulating.

too much mucous

Sep 21, 2009 - 0 comments

Yesterday, lungs felt almost clear, certainly a refreshing change. Today woke up with congested/tight chest, and coughing up mucous in the morning. Maybe not enough fluids yesterday....or too much salty foods, such as chips and popcorn.

Note: I think it's not so much the salty food, as the lack of physical activity, that has caused mucous buildup in the lungs.

Note#2: mid-day puff of Oxeze feels most effective when chest is congested/tight in the mornings with a mucous cough. Airways open up more after this dose and more mucous is coughed up, thus opening up the airways more.

starting new inhalers this evening

Sep 01, 2009 - 0 comments

Definately notice the difference in cough/mucous production when I reduce inhaler dosage (7 puffs the last 3 days). Plus drinking not enough water makes it worse and my chest feels really congested and tight then.

Bought the inhalers tonight (Oxeeze and Pulmicort) and noticed they are cheaper then when together in the Symbicort 200 inhaler. Plus there are 200 puffs in them compared to only 120 puffs in the symbicort. Hooray, that means I'm not refilling nearly as fast! And I save money. I look forward to trying out these inhalers over the next while. :-)
