My Husband Was Diagnosed With COPD Several Years Ago. He Has Done Well Over The Years But Lately He Gets Tired Very Easily.

My Husband Was Diagnosed With COPD Several Years Ago. He Has Done Well Over The Years But Lately He Gets Tired Very Easily.

The symptoms that he has now are very noticeable. At times he breaths loudly. He is also complaining of pain in his back. Mucus is most times a problem. He coughs to attempt to get the mucus up. Sometimes he gets some to move and at other times he doesn't. I would like to know what may be happening. Is this another stage of COPD? Should he get in touch with his Pulmonary Specialist? Or what should we do? This is getting to the point that I'm worried about it.

Just wanted to mention something on the Musinex. I was told not to get the DM version. I take 600mg of the regular Musinex once a day. May the good Lord be with you guys always...

Waking Up With Congested Lungs Every Night And Hot Sweats

Waking Up With Congested Lungs Every Night And Hot Sweats

Every night or morning I wake up and cannot clear my lungs for about an hour. It is getting worse and really struggle to breathe until I can eventually cough up the gunk. I find hot cups of tea help loosen it but its hard work making them. Does anyone have any other suggestion to make this process easier. I have nearly called an ambulance about 4 times in last fortnight. It's getting to the point were I am scared to go to sleep. I also wake up covered in sweat and boiling hot. Please… read more
