Why Is My Breathing Worse In The Mornings?

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.

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

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.
