Hi, my name is Peejay, I have just joined. I suffer from COPD and have don so for some years now. .My arms and legs are increasingly getting weaker, so much so that my legs feel as though they will buckle from under me at anytime and my arms feel like led weights Is this in any way connected to COPD at all? Have seen doctor but was not much help. Do any others experience these symptoms? It's very frightening, I'm scared that I shall soon be house bound or worse, bed bound .
