Have just been diagnosed with COPD after having numerous ongoing coughing fits for years. Never smoked however my loving mother smoked 40-60 a day without stopping for a breather so I can only imagine this is where I have accumulated the build up in my lungs.
Worried not so much for myself but the fact I have 4 kids under the age of 7 and there is a real lack of content with regards copd for non smokers.
I now start on the early road with inhalers and my primary appointments with respiratory consultants with a degree of uncertainty as I await chest X-rays and am only going on my pathetic lung blowing results (apologies forget the actual name of the test). The positive is that my ongoing headaches of 8-9 years may actually be down to copd so treating it may give me relief from this 24/7 headache which has been put down previously to chronic daily headaches to the point where I think I am going mad.
