Walking: Walking indoors is good for anyone, whether they have COPD or not. The best thing with COPD is to always remain active and do the most you can with the lung function you have. If you get tired, just stop and rest, and then keep going. The less you do, the more out of shape you become, and the harder it is to live with copd. It's not a death sentence. You can live a great life with copd.

COPD at age 24: Is highly unlikely, but having bronchitis or sinus infections or other problems related to smoking is very likely. Your body is trying to give you a message - it would be a very good thing for you to listen to it. If you are worried, your doctor can do simple office-based test to reassure you that it is not permanent damage to your lungs (yet), but what you really need is to stop smoking;.See 2 more doctor answers
If you are on oxygen because you have COPD can you get off oxygen if you exercise and stop smoking?
If your oxygen level drops too low, could that cause a non epileptic seizure. Also, if you have severe COPD would exercise lower your oxygen level.
Yes and yes: A very low oxygen tension can make people have seizure like activity or unconsciousness depending on the response of the cells of circuitry in your brain. The cells can become irritable and have more discharges. People with COPD are exercised to see if they need o2 as oxygenation can drop with activity depending on the severity of disease.
Yes: Above all, absolutely, positively no smoking or be exposed to second hand smoke. Damage on lung parenchyma usually permanent, damage to airway mucosa improves after quiting smoking. Progression of emphysema and cardiovascular illnesses over the years significantly slows down by quiting smoking.See 1 more doctor answer
9wks preg. HiRk due 2 asthma, pulm sten, heart mur, copd. Is there any exercise that's considered safe while being high risk?
Think differently: Don't know. Check with your cardiologist/ pulmonary about exercises. I propose you to treat the cause of asthma which is usually environmental such as inhalants dust molds pollens and hidden food allergy. This may take enough stress off your lungs and heart and also reduce need for asthma meds. And relieve resp distress. To learn more Please visit us at www. Ehacstl. Com
