Summer or Spring

Do you have seasons affect COPD? What season do you like best, spring or summer?

  1. Allergies make my worst times Spring and Fall. I am currently suffering a severe sinus infection which has now caused a flare-up with my COPD. Luckily I had a video visit already scheduled with my Pulmonologist who has gotten me meds to help get me over this mess. I live in Illinois.

    1. , uugh so sorry you are struggling with allergies right now, which caused a flare up! I am glad your Pulmonologist was able to help- I hope you feel better soon! ~Melanie (team member)

  2. I agree, spring can really be a pain in the butt. Sometimes I feel like it is a death sentence.

    1. I'm really sorry to hear that. How have you been feeling lately? Hope you've been able to cope with the changing seasons and wishing you all the best. - John M. ( Team)

  3. Hi gracesoundracer
    My COPD is happiest in cooler weather, so that is probably the end of fall and into winter as well. I live in South Dakota and @believe it’s drier during that time as well.
