YOU SHOULD NOT WORRY ABOUT BLOW CAPACITY BUT SEE FOR ASTHMATIC ATTACK INTERVAL.
BLOW CAPACITY ( PULMONARY CAPACITY ) IS IMPORTANT FOR DOCTOR FOR LINE OF MANAGEMENT.

Hi,
you require deep breathing exercise regularly,do not worry about range of blow.
take deep breathe as much as you can,hold it for few seconds and then gradually release and relax,do the same thing again.
Feel air in baloons,do this regularly.by this elasticity of your bronchioles will increase,capacity of air consumption will increase resulting air ease.

about 4 weeks ago I suddenly developed a dry mouth condition. I have no idea how or why this has happened. Can you help me understand what might be the root cause? I am not elderly, do not take medications, I eat well, hydrate well, exercise, and basically lead a very active and healthy life. I would like to know what your thoughts are about this. Thanks.

i can't find anyone with my problem...just pieces here and there. I am a 22 year old female. i have a family history of heart disease but my mother and father are fine. I usually have a glass of red wine almost every night and some weekend i go out and drink. I've had an occasional cigarette when drinking but not any time lately. I work in a stressful job but i don't feel like it is taking a toll on me, the only reason i mention it is because i hear chest pain can be stress related. i get a decent amount of exercise and doctors have always told me i am in good health aside from borderline asthma in high school. I also had a few panic attacks mid high school but haven't had any since. for the last two weeks or so i've had bad chest pains in the center of my chest between my breasts. the usual off and on pain through the weeks has felt like my ribs are being pushed or punched inwards and sometimes it makes it hard to breath and i actually start breathing harder. here and there i think i've felt a heart murmer and here and there i feel like someone stabs me in the chest or heart with a knife. its freaking me out and as i type i feel a deep pain i've had for the last 20 minutes. it seems like these pains are getting worse and im in the middle of searching for a new doctor. i dont know if i should wait for something bad to happen to go to the e.r. or if i should just book a doctors appointment and wait out the pain.
