I am new to this & have a bit of a problem.
Last year, I went to doctor because I was increasingly breathless on exertion. I was given a spirometry? test which was a bit suspect as I noticed the machine was calibrated for 2001 although this was 2009. I queried this but nurse said it made no difference :?
Anyway doctor said I had COPD & was given spiriva & another inhaler.
Second inhaler gave me severe palpitations ( I thought I was dying).
Nine months on, I am even more breathless, get severe pain & have no energy.
Do not know what is normal for this condition. I did not expect that in nine months I would go from being a bit breathless to being useless.
My lifestyle means that I have to walk a lot but now each step is an effort.
Again, is this normal?
