My worst time for breathing is getting in or out of bed. Thinking it may just be changing from a prone position to a seating position and vice versa. Anyone else have this situation?
It's something that a number of people experience and I think you're right, going from prone to seated or vice versa is often a breath-taking experience for some folks. @patriciaweidle, making the bed is hard enough, but singing while you're doing it would definitely make it harder! Maybe good for breath control.........
I awaken most mornings to pain in my legs. So I take a few deep breaths for circulation and slowly stretch my legs. Then I'm able to get up and start my day.
Just saying, Yes I do have this situation. Responding. So far it's not bad, though.
My condition is much worse than either of you. Walking more than 3-4 steps is out of the question for me. Making my bed consists of pulling the cover back over bed after I get out. Sitting in my chair talking drops my sat levels below 88, I still talk but take breaks.
@A MyCOPDTeam Member, this is a crazy question, but do you talk or sing while making your bed? Because that seems to take much more air, and I'm tired when I've finished. Same when I'm walking. Maybe I should just keep my trap closed, lol
