Diagnosed Oct 07 with copd. Last several months have been experiencing memory problems. And the things I am having memory problems with, are things that normally came easy to me. I am finding this somewhat scary. I have researched copd in depth. I have read articles on memory problems with COPD. I am 51. Has anyone else with copd experienced this? Any comments would be deeply appreciated. Thank you.
How are your oxygen levels? If they are somewhat low, that can affect memory. I know that others have experienced this, (I help moderate a COPD group), you are definitely not alone. I know that when my O2 levels were low (I don't have COPD, but I had some pretty severe O2 issues in the past), my mind was fuzzy and I could not concentrate. Once my levels were where they were supposed to be, I could literally see clearer. Worth looking into that is for sure....Sunny
