Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with copd after months & months of constant chest infection, antibiotics & generslly unwell & feeling unwell. Im reading as much as I can about this condition until I learn more regards to how to live/deal with it & best way forward. I had a ct scan whic I get the redults on wed from the consultant. He was unsble to do any breathing tests last week as I had nothing to give so may try them again this week although not sure what this entails. I currently on a 3 week course of steroids so am hoping to feel better after this...... will I be back to my normal self? Im struggling to understand why I feel up & down. Ok then chest hurts & beathing bad the next?! I dont kow ehat brings on this change so quickly? My throat & mouth constantly are so dry also.
Anyway, sorry to go on but any advice is gratefully acceoted. You learn the most from talking to others with the same/similar conditions.
