About a month after I quit smoking I started to feel short of breath(SOB) but only briefly. As time went on the duration of the SOB lasted longer and longer. Now I will have about 5 days where I feel decent and about 10 where I feel very SOB. SO I went to my doctor. She gave me a breathing test, xray, and ct scan. After reviewing my breathing test, she said I think you have the very beginning stage of copd...but not by much. She referred me to a lung doctor who gave me a better test and he said, after reviewing your results, I dont think you have copd. You got a 100% then a 107% after ylthe albuterol on your breathing test. He said its probably just stress. That was about 4 months ago. Ive picked up smoking again-which I intend to quit this week- but the bouts of SOB still havent gone away. My lung doctor told me not to take the dulera, or breo that my primary care physician prescribed me because he is confident its not copd. That was about 4 months ago. Just last week i started to feel pain in my back middle to upper back. Sometimes its a burning feeling somerimes its a percise pain. Any clues as to whats going on with me???
I am 28 years old. A white male. And I have smoked about a pack a day for between 12-14 years.
I could really use some advice. Thanks guys and girls
