Breathing great, dr told me 2 wean off Alvesco (ciclesonide) inhaler. 3 days off & asthma coming back. I have Hashimotos, TSH .3 now. Some anxiety + GERD too.

I have charcot marie tooth disease and have had breathing problems and sweat a lot. Is this normal with cmt?

Maybe: Cmt is a spectrum of disorders that generally manifest as peripheral motor & sensory nerve problems. While some types can affect breathing, they usually manifest at a young age. In adults CMT usually affects leg & arm nerves/muscles more & is unlikely to cause sweating. Sweating may be a side effect of a medication. I would get your breathing checked out to make sure it's not something else. ...Read more
