I used to smoke lots of marijuana. (due to depression )
Over 3 years ago now, after smoking some tobacco that I got from holland and barratt (some sort of nicotine free mix that was advertised as honey scented and natural but is in fact terrible) I felt like I had inhaled something bad and I got ill.
My illness / infection hit my chest.
I didnt think too much of it at the time as i was in reasonable heath.
After the illness, I noticed when I breathed out there was a tiny wheeze..
I gave up smoking totally and havnt smoked for over 3 years.
Unfortunately it has got worse and worse..
I now think its total rubbish that if you stop smoking it will not get worse..
I had never heard of COPD before that.
I have been active but the resistance / wheeze when I exhale has got worse and worse over the 3 years and I get out of breath very quickly.
I havnt had much luck at the doctors. I had tests and x rays but they havnt diagnosed me as such..
Recently its got worse again.. A constant feeling of something in my lungs and altho caughing seem the right thing to do, it doesnt help. it just seems the discomfort is unable to be relieved.
Does anyone know what I mea by this discomfort?
Are there any things people do to help it?
