How scary for both of you, lets hope these meds get to grip with this chest infection very soon.

Take care, if you feel wobbly sit down don't go wandering in the kitchen, worst place to fall.

That would have been scary,for the both of you!

I wonder if you should go back to the Docs.& let him know what happened?

As Polly said,get out of the kitchen,or anywhere else that might be risky,maybe get to the lounge,or onto the bed.

Do hope things are better for you soon xxx

What a horrible experience for you. You might want to mention it to the doctor incase one of the new tablets has disagreed with you. Wish you better.

That is very scary Marie and hope you are ok. Pete coughs really hard and goes very light headed and out of control. Yesterday he plonked himself down really hard on the loo seat and dislodged it! All fine now but it does frighten me and I prefer him to be sat down. Do take care and feel better very soon. xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have felt faint a few times the other day and this is not usually the case. currently more SOB than normal and maybe not getting enough oxygen though my oxy sat shows to be in the 90s so should be fine !

I would go along with Wendells and let your doctor know what has occurred, if the medics weren't called at the time.

The doc will probably want to check you out, and may even want to send you for some more tests and checks.

Glad you are ok now.

sorry to hear about that. I was dignosed last February with mild copd breathing kept getting worse and started to pass out luckily I was at the clinic for copd and they admitted me I had all sorts of tests and after two. weeks stay in hospital one week was Sheffield specialist unit they told me I had pulmonary arterial hypertension as well. I am now on oxygen and medication and feel better. there is no cure but it can be treated. perhaps you could mention this to you doctor. it is only diagnosed by special tests. good luck
