I was diagnosed recently with COPD and Emphysema. I was on oxygen and the nebulizer. Since then I'm on none of those. My breathing is fine and my oxy. level is very normal when checked. But my question is why do I get so fatigued so quickly at the least little things? This fatigue is really something to try to get used to. When the fatigue comes over me I'm not out of breath I'm just fainty and weak feeling. I am a lot better now and I'm so thankful for that and I'm wondering if I will ever be able to get past this on and off weakness. What do you think? Ya'll are so experienced with these issues and I totally value your opinions.

I read on here something about the inogen portables. I am very small in stature and have a small tank for portable. They are about a foot tall. Was thinking of buying a portable but was told with the battery they are about 5 lbs. I dont think I could carry that much weight. Just wondering if anyone has a portable. Do the batteries wear out fast?
