Follow up to my last/first post, i am now 5 weeks without cigs and still feel like hell. Still SOB most of the time. I mentioned it to my specialist last Friday (Thai) and all he said was COPD. But as i tried to explain to him i had no problem breathing whilst smoking. The SOB started about 2 days after i quit smoking. Those of you who are early stage1, maybe you can tell me how you feel?
I have a strange sensation several times a day which feels like someone is pressing gently against my larynx cutting off my air supply. Initially i would panic, now i know i need to get my breathing under control and normally do so although at least once a day i will start dry heaving at this point. Anyone else the same?
I know i have to stop smoking and never would have thought i would get to 5 weeks but i feel so ill, it is affecting my work.
