COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)
my husband at times coughs so hard and then passes out for a few seconds if i`m home i will shake him to wake him,,,sometimes he says he does this and dont know how long he was out,any ideas thank you
Fainting from coughing is not a normal or expected experience. Please have your husband see a physician as soon as possible as there are multiple reasons this may be occurring.
