I wonder if anyone else has experienced a particular issue, post-stroke, with breathing?
I’m not speaking here about breathlessness or fatigue, but rather an issue of ‘shallow breathing’ when I should be breathing deeply. If involved in a particular task that requires concentration (and, although never much good at multi-tasking, now I have to concentrate fully on one thing at a time) I find that my body simply doesn’t, automatically, breathe deeply when required. This shallow breathing then, in turn, leads to a huge discomfort around the ‘middle’. Fortunately a lie down for 20 minutes or so usually solves the problem, but I just wondered if this was a widespread issue or if I’m alone in this one.
Kind regards and richest blessings
