I recently was diagnosed hypoxemia. Not quite sure what to expect. He prescribed oxygen at night. I was wondering if this could be passed down in families. My grandpa was short of breath, so was my mother, and now me! Wonder if this is something you should always be on medication for.

I can’t take 2 steps without my oxygen level dropping even while wearing oxygen. My hypoxia is due to scarring in lungs from rheumatoid arthritis.
