Possibilities...: These symptoms could possibly be related to low oxygen in your blood. If you are prescribed oxygen 24/7, you need to guard against "running out" since your oxygen level may drop to life-threatening levels very quickly. See your doctor for help with this problem!

Yes wait 3 months: If you quit smoking your lung capacity may improve and retesting oxygen need after 2 to 3 months is recommended.
