Hello, I have had degenerate discs in my back for many years now, both in the cervical and lumber regions. I have recently been diagnosed with v.severe COPD, this came as a shock to me as the only symptom I have is sob, no cough or chest infections. However when researching my back problems it says that both cervical and lumber problems can cause sob. The sob started last year at the same time as I had a flare up of my neck problems. Has anyone else had these problems ? or can give me any information about the probability of this ?
So fed up now as my lower back has flared up and walking is very painful. I know it is important to keep as active as possible for the COPD and feel I'm in a catch 22 position.
Any help or information would be appreciated.
Thank you for being here. ......X
