Hi everyone.. I have a constant cough that mostly produces phlegm for about 4 years now. I also have what I can only describe as post nasal drip? I have the constant need to clear my throat all day long because of mucus draining down my throat. I am 37 years old and have smoked since I was 13. Does this sound like bronchitis? Or am I too young yet? I'm just not sure of the symptoms of bronchitis. I seem to be able to breath good and my oxygen level is 99%.. I think that is what it's called anyway. I do happen to get short of breath easily when I am doing cardio excersices though, which I used to be able to handle. What are the symptoms of things such as bronchitis, emphysema, copd..ect. I'm at the point where I'm just very nervous and scared, but I just can't seem to stop smoking. I smoke 10 ciggerettes a day and have been trying to cut down, but I just can't seem to do it. Should I be scared here, or perhaps it's just allergy's, that I never knew I had? Any advice would be appreciated.. Thank you in advance..
