i am a 77 year old male with very bad copd. recently suffered an exacibation and was sent to my local hospital for a ct scan. the dioctor who read the scan didnot give me very much information except to say he thought i had a chest infection. and gave me a course of antibiotics and some patches to put on my arm for the pain this mpain has become over the past few days particularly when i breathe in. '
because of this pain my anxiety has increased tenfold and i have been unable to sleep for the last three nights.
please is there anybody out there who can help me as i don not know where to turn. i know that many of you with copd get panic attacks. i never realised just how bad they could be. I have tried laying down but the fear kicks in and I immediiately jump out of bed because I feel that I am suffocating and now with the back pain the feeling of suffocating is getting worse. I am even too frightened to take a sleeping tablet in case I do not wake up/
