I'm going for a Spirometer Test in 2 weeks time. My GP gave me something to blow into in the surgery and said the number was 200 which is only half of what it should be. I've had a dry cough since new year which eventually changed to a phlemie cough and eventually flu-like symptoms. I was sent for chest x-ray as I've had this kind of thing before 3 years ago. Chest x-ray came back clear but showing the beginnings of COPD. I have osteoporosis and take medications for that so was concerned when doc gave me a steroid inhaler. I'm still coughing but phlem is decreasing although VERY slowly. Could this be temporary? I'm concerned about my travel insurance premiums!
