on O2 hmm could this be helpful with my pain issues???

Hi all my Spineys,
I have been for years on a search to get answers, for my constant pain.
I have a long list of specialist, and have had so many different diagnosis.
Now I am back to having lung issues, been thru so many more test. From pulmonary functions, labs have pages of things that I am allergic to. Waiting now on insurance to see if I can get an injection of xolair. It's very costly, the doc says it's the best med. for me since I have so many allergens in my lungs and body. It sucks all of the allergens out of you.
Due to so many times of having pneumonia I have a lot of scaring in my lungs. Also found a lot of nodules none of are cancer(thank God)the fungi they found need to grow from 8-10 wks before get results. I have bronchitis which is chronic. (hmm ya think I will get disability now). I have appointment next wk to go over results of sleep study.

So since my oxygen levels drop when I just walk I am on O2 all the time. I have found when I wake I no longer feel the extreme ache of pain thru out.
Yet I have been doing more of different type of exercises. I so miss the water exercises but until doc and I get to were I don't drop in levels I have to have o2 on all time. I tried and it's poss. to do water things just limited to the side of the pool.
I am wondering (after my babbling) do any of you have lack of oxygen, and can there be a link to oxygen and my yrs of pain.
My last mri was a sitting one shows my fusion in 06 is fine. and for now other discs are okay.
I have neuro, and rhuemo still believing I have fibro.
And I am borderline(said my neuro and emg)line neuropathy of legs.
Today just after making a crock pot of chicken n dumplings I am in such pain. I think it's the new exercises I have to do for the Copd. oh did I mention have early stages of that on top of asthma .
I was a social smoker, never did everyday but if we went out or drank a beer I smoked like a chimney. All tho don't drink but few times a yr. When I did I smoked. Now can't take the smell of cigs off my hubbies clothes. I just go into such coughing fit, with other things also. Can't have anything sprayed into the air.
Does anyone else have chronic pain and have O2 issues.

good few yrs. 09 pain sharp, numbness feet,legs, diagnosed fibro, neurop. legs.lung issues.
daily goal do good thing for someone.


  • If you do your homework on oxygen depletion you'll find that most any bodily function *could* be attributed to it. If you have asthma, emphysema, copd and the like that is properly diagnosed. Then taking in additional pure oxygen to get your blood cells properly oxygenated could do a lot of good things.

    Your symptoms you describe seem to run the gamut of everything being wrong. Seeing every type of doctor and getting different diagnosis is not good. You need a consistent diagnosis. Something to work with.

    You can also get a high from taking in large amounts of pure O2. When you oxygenate your blood cells to a level they are not used to seeing you get a high or euphoria simply because you do feel better temporarily. If you take it under doctors care with some type of dosing. You may find several other problems you have go away or tone down. Then again maybe not. It's not a miracle cure.
