I'm 43 male very overweight. I was diagnosed 10 years ago with sarcoidosis and sent to lung specialists.he sent me for all kinds of lung function test. His nurse calls me a few days later says I have moderate emphysema and need to quit smoking. I was able to stop smoking and have been smoke free now for 8 years. When I smoked I coughed a lot but since quitting I no longer cough. I do have shortness of breath but I am overweight a lot.I recently took a basic lung function test the very basic one that takes like 5 min. I think it measures how much air your moving. In and out. It showed normal.my question is could the test I took 10 years ago have been mistaken. They were very extensive test. But I don't have a cough my o ly symptom is shortness of breath. And extreme fatigue. But as I stated I'm significantly overweight.I've read most people with emphysema have a cough
