I find it hard to accept that I supposedly have COPD as I have never smoked in my life. I had my first asthma attack when I was 7, I'm 74 now, I have only had a few attacks in my lifetime. My asthma has been under control with a preventer puffer for all of my adult life. I noticed a cough in 2015 and I am still coughing in Dec. 2017. I have seen a lung specialist and an ear nose and throat specialist. The only thing that showed up was sleep apnea. My GP gave me a spirometry test as my breathing has become more difficult and I now wheeze sometimes especially when I try to sleep so I have to use Ventolin.
Anyway I am now on 2 puffers and my breathing has not improved so in Jan. 2018 I am going to have another spirometry.
What I'm trying to say is I cannot see how I could have got COPD. Can anyone let me know what they think.
