I have been diagnosed with mild COPD but I wondered if anybody else suffers strange attacks. I become sort of lightheaded, not giddy, but a strange feeling and then I feel breathless and as though I am going to fall over. It is accompanied by real weakness which can last for some time-an hour or more. Is this COPD?
I am generally quite fit, eat a healthy diet, do Pilates three times a week and walk most days. However, I am 70 and I suppose that has to be factored in. My heart has been checked and is fine.
