Hi guys I wanted to ask a few questions. I'm 29 and have smoked the past ten years. Probably around 12 per day. I recently went through a stressful month and was smoking a lot. The past week i noticed my chest feels really heavy and I'm not breathing the same. When I'm laying down, it feels like I can't breathe normally. When I suck in, my chest feels heavy like I can't pull in. I went on the internet to research and got really scared that it could be copd. I was wondering how likely this is? Exactly 9 months ago I had a chest ct scan with contrast for something unrelated (swollen lymph nodes under arm) and the report said my lungs were unremarkable. Could copd form in such a short time since the ct scan? I threw away all of my cigarettes and will never smoke again. Thanks
