Since having oxygen therapy I have not had a full relapse and to be free of that worry has been life altering and amazing. My tolerance for physical exercise and everyday tasks continues to steadily improve, I use my inhaler less and have decreased the amount of steroids I take. However, every Tuesday I feel my chest getting tighter and breathing becomes harder once I've had my session on a Wednesday those feelings disappear again,I occasionally wonder what my health would be like now if I hadn't started oxygen therapy.
Although I still live with a certain amount of fatigue, as I also have Fibromyalgia, it is now back to the levels pre-COVID, I've also noticed significant improvements in tinnitus, visual disturbances, sleep quality and concentration levels.
