Diagnosed about 5 years ago with lots of phlegm and coughing being primary symptoms.
Found that avoiding dairy got rid of 98% of these symptoms about a year ago
Went through the summer with no medication with no apparent ill effect
At recent check up FEV1/FVC of 62%...I was told that this confirmed COPD diagnoses and to take my inhalers...so I have. Recent cold has left me with chesty cough..(if it does not go soon I will go to doc) however none of the discomfort is in my lungs or chest it is in my throat...(this is the case always not just in this instance) when I have a coughing fit the irritation seems around my trachea not around my lungs...is this usual for COPD?
