I was just diagnosed with moderate COPD on May 22. My FEV1 is 64%, and ratio is 70%. At this point, my CT scans and CXRs are clear. GP referred me to pulmonary Dr. I see him on the 25th. I have an 11 yr old son at home and wonder if I'm gonna be around to watch him grow. I don't have significant SOB, but can't get that deep satisfying breath, and I'm often tired. I sometimes also get a burning sensation in the top of my chest, just below collar bone. Not sure what to expect next...
