Is it bad when you yawn a lot? Sometimes I yawn a lot but feel fine. Not tired really. Lack of oxygen?
Mixed: As a pulmonologist I know that hypoxia (low oxygen saturation) is something to be avoided, but I think we may well over-prescribe oxygen therapy. There are trials going on to determine whether our current practice (provide supplemental o2 to anyone who drops below 88% saturation either at rest or with activity) is beneficial, harmless, or harmful. You may want to see if you are eligible for this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lack of O2 is correlated with learning disabilities, as well, so it could be a factor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
