Phrenic nerve palsy
So good to find you guys (despite the circumstances), I came across this forum by chance and after reading your messages I feel confident that I have Phrenic nerve palsy. It gets worse when I lie down and the smallest task gets me winded. I had an emerge visit which tested for Covid-19 (negative), did a chest X-ray (clear) and was sent home. But my misery didn't go away so I went to see my GP. My GP said it was mild Asthma and gave me Breo, when that didn't work he suspected allergies. He is a great doctor and I know he is trying the best he can to help me. I have an appointment tomorrow and I plan to discuss Phrenic nerve palsy with him. I would never have thought of this if I hadn't come across this forum so thank you! I will update after the appointment.
