      Wear a cloth mask over your face when outside in the cold. It's saved me from feeling like my lungs had frozen in place. I hope they're looking to see if you have pneumonia at this point? Or covid? The rapid increase of trouble breathing is concerning.

      My asthma always gets bad when its humid, so when it's bad I try to run a dehumidifier and keep my activity levels lower.
