    Hi paulabz and thanks for your question. I see Lyn has provided a link to an article posted on our website and, as she said, this should provide you with some additional insight. I thought you might also find this article by John Bottrell addresses some of your concerns as well.
    Please do check back with us and let us know how you’re doing/feeling.
    All the best,

    Hi PAULABZ,

    I’m sorry you’re having problems with shortness of breath. As you may know, we can’t give medical advice via this forum, but I certainly understand your concerns. There can be many reasons for shortness of breath – and you’ve probably experienced a few of them. We actually talked about it a while back in an article that I think would be very helpful to you. Here’s the link: https://copd.net/answers/sob-and-supplemental-oxygen/

    Please let us know how you make out.

    Regards,
    Lyn (moderator)
