For the past 8-9 weeks (!), I have had an unidentifiable illness that’s been plaguing me. I’ve been having trouble breathing and have a lot of gunk in my chest.
I’ve seen multiple doctors, and I keep getting different answers. First, it was bronchitis, then it was an upper respiratory infection. Then it was a weird case of heartburn. Then back to an upper respiratory infection.
I’ve been on steroids, antibiotics, heartburn medicine, an albuterol inhaler, and back to another round of steroids. Nothing has helped.
This mysterious illness has been super annoying. I get winded after stroking around the rink once and obviously am having a hard time in my lessons. Sadly, I have not run my program recently since I cannot breathe. I have been able to run bits and pieces of it, but not the full thing.
I’m hoping to finally kick this illness soon because I plan on competing locally next month.
