Most people take air and breathing as just there, but those of us who struggle to breath everyday know different. Every little thing I do, such as walking to kitchen or bathroom leaves huffing and puffing. I have the very best filtration possible for my home and that helps some, but going out side in the high humidity we have this year makes doing my chores (taking care of my chickens and a little gardening) a very difficult event. It takes twice as long and I have to constantly sit to catch my breath or I will get dizzy from blowing off too much CO2. I feel like there is a tight band around my chest that will not let me take a deep breath. When I am out in public areas, people will ask if I am ok, because of my huffing and puffing.
Today I under go a battery of new and some old tests to try and figure out why. For the last 10 years they have been trying to figure out the cause as it slowly becomes worse. My fingers are crossed that today will be different.
It is difficult when you can't really exercise to loose weight because you can't breath.

    I do have allergies also and that complicates things even more. Yes some days are worst than others. I think of myself as a tough cookie and just push on the best I can. I have had a kidney transplant and was given a second chance on life, so I believe in pushing myself and enjoying life to the max.

    I hope you get some answers; while my problem is not nearly as severe as yours sounds, I do have trouble certain times of the year too. I have many allergies, and am prone to asthmatic bronchitis. It would be hard to exercise with the problems that you suffer. Will say a prayer for you that you find help!
