One reason may be that we breathe more shallowly when we're asleep. Then we wake up and we get up, doing more than we've done over the last 8 hours or so.....so breathing can be worse until you get fully awake and move around enough to breathe more deeply.
@A MyCOPDTeam Member wow envious here but yep were all different im a ugh in the am but not bad by noon
I have the opposite problem. My breathing is much better in the morning, so I try to get things done before afternoon. I think we're all different
Thanks for your answers. I am now a bit wiser
I didn’t know but I needed a CPAP and my oxygen got below 00. I now have a CPAP and I put my oxygen line on it. I wake up feeling better. Apparently, I stopped breathing 20 times per hour.
