Lungs

I probably still have stuff in my lungs from my last two bouts of ick; I definitely have inflammation. Apparently my peak airflow is less than half of "normal". Awesome fun!

So I'm on a steroid inhaler twice daily for the foreseeable future, plus Mucinex just in case. If my breathing does not improve, we'll Try Something Else.

Inflammation is a red flag for autoimmune in general, but given my two recent respiratory hells, it's likely that it's just that being sick for two months has aggravated my asthma to the point where it won't recover without extra help*. So. Now I have some extra help. Hopefully it'll work!


*and not that my immune system has decided that other parts of my body must be destroyed, which is a thing that we have to look out for forever.
