Six weeks ago I went to the doctor because I was struggling to breathe and kept coughing, weeks after having a chesty cold and expected a cough medicine and lecture about smoking. Instead, I was sent for x-rays, ct scan and had a spirometry test. Today I got the diagnosis of COPD. To say I'm stunned is a bit of an understatement. I've led an active life and this news has floored me. I've came home with a pamphlet and 3 inhalers. Shaking with fear for my future, so any advice would be great. Thanks.
