Hello, I was diagnosed with mild COPD on Thursday. I am having a hard time sleeping. I wake up six times a night and can't get back to sleep. I think I wake up because I am having a hard time breathing. Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do so I can sleep through the night?

    Hey leib, it is great to meet you. I am so glad you found your way to COPD Connect. I am a therapist, not a physician, so I am sorry to say I don't have any helpful advice for you. But I always encourage my clients in your situation to not hesitate to be high maintenance. I encourage them to stay in close touch with their doctors, to let him/her know what's going on with them. Waking up so often and having a difficult time breathing is a lot to deal with. I hope your doctor is aware of this. Take good care of yourself, my friend. And I hope you will stay in touch with us.
