Went in for a consult for sleep study today and they did a breathing test because I smoke. Then I was told I have moderate copd. I'm only 37 and want to see my kids at least grow up. Now understand I have panic disorder also. I didn't really push myself on the test because I wasn't there for that anyway. I didn't know I was seeing a pulmonary doc anyway. It said sleep doctor. I didn't know I was suppose to give it all I had on the test. I was in such shock I didn't really get many answers. All I remember was he said 80 to 100 was normal and I was at 61 which he said was moderate. I'm so lost and in tears because I'm so scared I won't see my kids grow. He gave me a inhaler blue one I have had before for mild asthma. Also gave me a once a day breo I think it's called but I am worried about that one because I have a higher then normal heart rate. Always have had that. Can someone please help me. Tell me what to do because I don't see this doc again till April. That's a long time for someone with anxiety panic disorder.
