Re: Parkinson and breathing difficulty

I have the same thing or something close, nearly every waking hour on bad days. Respiratory dyskinesia. I can inhale with no problems, but once my lungs are full, my stomach and ribcage tighten, and I hold my breath then release it in bursts, most of which I can't control. In a word, I pant like a dog. It wastes a lot of energy and is exhausting. I try to relax, and take long, slow breaths as in meditation. Hope that helps.
