I'm currently house sitting in Las Vegas and have kept the thermostat at what most people consider a 'reasonable' temp. --78*.
I'M ROASTING TO DEATH NEARLY EVERY NIGHT!!
Now, I live in the high desert in So.Calif so excessive heat is not a new thing to me, but I'm trying not to leave the owners with a huge electricity bill. I've been sleeping with a fan blowing on me and it helps tremendously. For the past 2 days , especially for the first 4 - 5 he's of the day, my lungs have hurt. When I breathe they 'ache', especially when I breathe deep. Could this be from the fan? I do wake up extremely dry in the mouth. I'm I drying out my lungs or what??. I have been diagnosed with moderate emphysema from-- yep-- smoking for many years.
Any ideas or answers?
Please and thank you.
I also had a 6 month follow up low dose cat scan 5 days ago and have been nervous about the results-- have not heard anything yet.
