@@postalrick– Hello! How did the blood gas test go for you? Was it painful? Have you been able to quit smoking? Could your headaches be stress headaches? I get them in the front of my head. https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tension-headache/symptoms-causes/syc-20353977

Thanks Merry – have not had a blood gas test as yet. I am going to ask the pulmonary doctor about this on the 13th. Stress? I don't know…possible, but I don't think likely. When at the very few times my headache is light…when I cough it automatically gets much worse immediately. I hate to say this but I really do believe the headaches are part of my COPD condition. But, I do remember having these migraines several years ago – they lasted for about 6-7 months and then disappeared. No doctor or specialist could tell me what caused them. Again, thank you.
