Hi all, just a question, been recently told I have COPD in January of this year, been struggling for the past 4 years with breathing, I have been told im 52%
I have made an appointment with my COPD nurse for next week as im worried about my oxygen levels.
They have been reading in the mid to low 70's most days when resting, they only pick up and go into the 90's when I have been moving about (this is probably because im huffing and puffing as I walk)
Im waking with very bad headaches too almost every morning.
Been doing a bit of research but from what I can see peoples oxygen levels tend to drop when moving about, so why does mine drop when resting and pick up on moving about?
I did have oxygen levels tested at the doctors about 6 weeks ago but they where 99% but that's probably because I had been moving about.....I have taken readings from my Oximeter to take to the nurse.
anyone any ideas why my readings are low on resting and pick up when moving about?
