Hi Lyn you ask away. Nobody minds that. Would be a good idea to get checked by your doctor. Xxxx

Hello Lyn1955 .

I would say definitely mention it to your doctor. Probably totally unrelated, but I get more headaches in spring since I have some pollen allergies. And that makes my breathing a bit more difficult.

I hope you feel better very soon.

Take good care.

hi Lyn.....I get headaches and feel more short of breath when the barometric pressure makes big swings.

I get headaches which trip into migraines on the (fortunately now rare) occasions my blood oxygen levels go rather low.

First thing I do when I get a headache (rare) is drink a tumbler of water, or at least half of one - I know it sounds really simple but dehydration can cause headaches so worth trying some water before getting too worried about other things. I woke the other day with a really bad headache and more breathless than usual but headache went and breathing was better after a few drinks of water - worth a try - can't do any harm - good luck anyway xxx

I would mention it to the DR and ask about getting your Co2 levels checked. Headaches one of the major symptoms of Co2 retention.

Hi every one thank u so much for all your replays. Today I saw the doctor he gave me something for acid reflux. Also I have another chest infection. My heart rate was higher then he like 155 . And oxy levels was 90 . He was ok with that . . He said to get rid of infection first then see if headaches have gone.
