hi folks I've just joined the forum because quite honestly I'm a bit scared. I've had a cough now for over 8 weeks which has subsequently turned into breathlessness. After a third visit to my docs just over a week ago I was told that I have COPD. Well never heard of it, I was coughing too much to ask the doctor much so have relied on Internet info.
I was given an inhaler but not told how to use it, I think I have it Sussed now. I was told to take anti hystermines and have had appointments booked for stopping smoking (easy to stop when you're struggling to breath really)
my spirometry test is tomorrow. My dr indicated that she thinks I have mild COPD when I saw her the other week but I feel so unwell and tired having difficulty doing even basic stuff like getting dressed at the mo.
anyway can anyone throw any light on how you should feel and what light there is at the end of the tunnel. I feel like I'm really letting my family down at the moment.
