On xmas eve night all was calm and relaxed, then two coughs from yours truly, and I go unconscious and appear to be fitting which scared the hell out my wife as she thought I was on the way out !! ... Test have indicate I may have Cough-Syncope. My oxygen levels (even when on oxygen 24/7) are always low but under excertion (getting dressed or even coughing) my oxygen levels drop dangerously low resulting in my brain becoming short of blood/oxygen which causes me to black out .. I understand cough- syncope is quite common in COPD victims and just wanted any sufferers point of view while I wait for the next one
On another issue the Pallative Doctors are thinking about putting me on GABAPENTIN to try and ease coughing -Is there anyone out there on Gabapentin and how are they finding it ( and don' say it's in the kitchen drawer LOL).
Got to get my self fit for all the New years Parties and only a short time to do it LOL
I just love to be different
Take Care Everyone
