Tiredness can be caused by many things. You need to see a Dr and or your Pulmonologist to get it properly diagnosed. Please ensure, however, that they check your oxygen level 1) at rest, 2) actively doing something, 3) during a 6 minute walk test, and 4) during your evening sleep. Best Wishes, judg69

Thank you judg69 I'm like a zombie not sure if I need oxygen I never feel rested have a blessed day x

for twenty dollars or so you can pick up a pulse oximeter at the pharmacy or on line. put it on your finger no nail polish and if you register less than 90% saturation you most likely will need oxygen. I am very severe and on oxygen 11 years now and am exausted most of the time. Takes exercise to get the oxygen to your organs and muscles. good luck. oxygen deprivation also makes me very forgetfull
