ok so ill start at the begining about 7 years ago my father passed away from copd so its been on my radar since then. i have been battling on and off since to quit smoking but managed to kick it properly now but thats when the breathing issues started so alarm bells rang and i booked an appointment it took about 8 weeks and 2 cancelled appointments before finally getting my spirometry test done yesterday (23/4/18) now on sat i climbed a small mountain. well bennachie so a little smaller than a mountain lol. i managed this quiet well and surprisingly didnt have the breathing issue i was worried of it was more a weight problem that slowed me down but any way. sunday night i felt like i could blow all the little piggies houses down and that my lung problem was tar clearing out from my lungs and it was passed. ive never had a cough or pain just felt breathless at times. now onto the test i think i cocked up the breathing a little bit. couple times i crunched forward on exhale other times i think i blew it all out too quick then when it came to the candle blow part i did the opposite but the nurse seemed happy so i figured shes the professional she would know if id done it wrong. so result was copd at 30!!!!!!!!!. now once she said that things are a little blurry but all i can remember is 62% and mild copd. i was in total shock because i felt like it was all fine. i was given 2 inhalers 1 called incruse 55 and one subituol or something after taking them i have pains in my chest, my chest feels tight im more breathless than ive ever been before. im wondering if ive managed to muck up the test and ended up taking meds that aren't right for me or if im allergic or something but im just finding it very strange that all of a sudden things have gotten worse after taking the meds.
