I feel like I have been swimming under water for too long and my chest burns and feel so much pressure. Since my COPD has progressed I have been having very bloody stools. I have had a scope done to make sure there was not a problem with my colon. I have always had excellent blood pressure but now it has risen about 30 points. I have also had trouble with my heart rate dropping into the low thirties for no apparent reason. Please tell me if these are symptoms from the COPD and if I am retaining too much carbon monoxide is why my lungs feel so full. I am also getting UTI's which I had never had before and I am losing control of my bladder, Please I desperately need answers. I am very confident in my pulmonologist but his bedside manner leaves much to be desired.
You are retaining carbon dioxide, different gas. What meds are you on? Some of them could be causing some of your problems. The heart and the lungs are closely related and when one is off the others will be too to try to balance it out.
