COPD is a condition that makes your daily life more challenging. It causes shortness of breath that can strike you during physical activity or even while resting.
COPD cannot be cured, so if you have the disease, you must learn how to live with it. Medical treatments are an important part of living with COPD. These can help slow the progression of the disease and reduce the severity of flare-ups.
Life with COPD flare-ups
Flare-ups of COPD symptoms affect everyone differently. Some flare-ups include coughing that produces mucus. Others may cause wheezy breathing. However, one symptom that’s present in every COPD flare-up is shortness of breath.
It’s this shortness of breath that makes your daily life more difficult. At first, it may be more difficult to breathe during activities like running or exercising. Then, as the disease progresses, more daily tasks cannot be completed without having to stop and catch your breath.
People with COPD may have problems getting around the house or walking down the driveway to get the mail. Traveling anywhere outside your home can be difficult, since you may need a scooter or portable oxygen to get around.
Medical treatments can help improve your ability to breathe, but they can only do so much. That’s why many people with COPD look for alternative options to supplement their medical treatments.
