@tdrell ….hi there and thank you for your response. Lets see where to start. I had an echocardiogram on my heart almost a year ago. Did a sleep test over the summer…all normal. Just has blood work done 2 months ago all normal expect my Vit. D is low again and I do take supplements every day. No sputum cultures because a biopsy, then wedge resection, and bronchoscope all showed positive for MAC. Yearly CT show the MAC and bronchiectasis. Where the MAC came from I do not know. Starting at age 17 I had a spontaneous pneumothorax……again in my early 20's and I was a smoker at the time. Had surgery on both my lungs by the time I was 21. Had a few bouts with pleurisy, in my 20's and 30's and had pneumonia 3x in my 30's. Quit smoking 16+ years ago and I'm in my early 50's now. Spent some time in hot tubs in my 20's and I've been to Florida several times. Like you said there is the shower head and soil. Yes, it's very green where I live but I have never had allergies. Not to say I can't get them now. I have had shortness of breath for a year or so now and I use ProAir Respiclick when needed……the fatigue would come and go…..now it's here more often. By 2pm yesterday I wanted to crawl under my desk and take a nap. Today not as tired. I over sleep just about every morning! To be honest…sometimes I am just too tired to take a shower. Going for a pulmonology follow-up the 12th. Maybe I need a new pulm function test to see if there are any changes.
I will say I am happy to hear you caught the blockage in your heart before there was any damage.
I am so grateful for the responses I am getting from everyone. I will take a look around and see what other information I can find. Thank you!
