    I have been using the machine for two weeks and am noticing positive changes. one big problem though, when I stop the machine to use the bathroom, or to get up in the morning, i've been experiencing massive asthma attacks. it's the weekend now, just curious if anyone else has had this. thankyou.

    Have these asthma attacks continued? If they have, it would be a good idea to talk with your doctor about what you are experiencing, if you haven't already. There might be some necessary treatment adjustments your doctor can suggest. I hope you will keep us updated on what you find.

    Best wishes,
