Had a couple of attacks in last couple of days. Although the breathlessness was not severe enough to go to A & E they are worrying in the fact that they have brought on really bad headaches. The attacks have come on in the morning when i got out of bed and started moving around. Started coughing feeling out of breathe becoming dizzy and then the headache comes on. The headache usually subsides after about 15 mins after taking some co-dydramol but it takes a few hours for the fuzziness to recede. Rang my doc yesterday and he prescribed preds without seeing me but nothing else.
Has anyone else had similar symptoms? Is it due to a lack of oxygen to the brain? Does anyone have equipment at home to measure blood oxygen levels? Should i go back to see doc and try to get to the bottom of the headaches.
