Hello, I'm 32. I've had shortness of breath and pain when breathing in for a couple weeks. Chest X-ray showed focal airspace disease in a couple areas of one lung. Urgent care Dr suspected pneumonia. No response to antibiotics and steroids. No cough now or before. No fever. Some fatigue. I can walk across any room without being out of breath. But the shortness of breath is definitely an issue I'm feeling.
Now I'm on round 2 of antibiotics, now from regular doctor. No response so far. Pulmonary function test showed lungs of 128-year-old. I smoked for several years and have now quit (like two weeks ago now, because of this). Appt with pulmonologist not for a week.
Do you think this is COPD? Any advice or help?
