I thought this was interesting news to report.
The face masks we are told to wear in public, have some drawbacks.people have been getting dizzy, and even passed out wearing the mask.. Reason doctors are finding is because we normally breathe in oxygen, and exhale carbon dioxide. With the mask around our nose we are breathing in carbon dioxide, and not oxygen.
Interesting. Warned: DO NOT WEAR YOUR MASK WHEN DRIVING.
ITS A SITUATION OF YOU ARE DAMMED IF YOU DO, AND DAMMED IF YOU DONT.
the corona virus is serious stuff I don’t think anybody will rest easy until there is an antidote for this virus.
Stay safe

@funcountess You'll notice that I moved your post to this existing discussion called "We're told to wear masks. How do we do it safely and properly?"

Some people, especially people with compromised lung capacity, also find it difficult to breathe through some facemasks. I have not found the masks make me dizzy.

For me, the biggest concern is if people do not put on and take off masks properly. I'm particularly concerned when I see people driving between stores with the mask pulled down below their chin.

@funcountess– Good morning. Yes, you are right, there are drawbacks to wearing masks. But unlike medical professionals who are attending ill patients for many hours at a time, people should only be wearing them for a short period of time because we are supposed to be at home. You will only be damned if you don't wear a mask because you could contact COVID-1! There are a lot of posts and videos and podcasts on Connect about the correct way to wear a mask, directions on how to make one and how to wash them, and how to take them on or off. People who ignore these many examples are taking huge chances.
It is a myth that you are breathing in co2 and exhaling oxygen. To properly fit a mask to your face, it should first be covering both your mouth and your nose. This is definitely more uncomfortable than just covering one's mouth with the face mask because you are breathing back in some of the exhaled air. … You MUST breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth.

I know that we aren't used to wearing masks and are uncomfortable wearing them. If you have had a problem with a mask, how have you solved it?
