When your COPD suddenly gets worse, it’s called a “flare-up” or “attack.” It becomes harder to breathe, and you might feel tired or cough more. These flare-ups can be caused by things like a chest infection, air pollution, or a sudden change in temperature. A COPD attack feels scary, but knowing how to control it can keep you from panicking. So learn how to use your inhaler and spacer before you need them. Take any medicine your doctor has given you. Protect yourself. Make sure you’re vaccinated against COVID and get a flu shot. Learn more about coping with COPD attacks.
