Had the blood gas test – ABG – not painful and was negative…no build-up of CO2. Went to pulmonary doc 2 weeks ago – no help at all – really just sat there and listened – only made suggestions AFTER I made the suggestion. I do not like him but his office is the only pulmonary doctors in my area – next closest is 65 miles away. He ordered a sleep study which I will have on May 2, 2019. Headaches are the same – have not gone away – still very painful all day long. He did not prescribe anything to help this…nothing at all. I actually believe he is useless to a large degree. It's really discouraging.
Also had overnight oximetry test – he said it showed that I have reduced oxygen level for a little over one hour during the night…so, he ordered the sleep study. I just don't believe that this will answer my headache problem.
Does anyone know how to rid yourself of mucus? When I get up in the morning the mucus has pooled in my lungs and throat. Of course I try to cough this up…in doing so my headache pain increases 20 fold. Any suggestions – cause I don't think my doctor cares whether or not my headaches get help or whether or not I get help for my COPD.
