I'm sort of an odd egg in more ways than one. But I always took good care of myself physically, diet, exercise, never smoke and drank only socially. Then I got a weird type of autoimmune COPD two years ago. It confused doctors, some saying I had COPD, others not. All I knew was I couldn't breath.
Then about 8 months ago it all suddenly went away as sometimes happens with autoimmune diseases and my breathing normal. It felt great. Then about 1 month ago i got a real small bout of bronchitis, so small it was barely noticable, but the COPD returned with a vengeance. I even passed out at the gym and they called an ambulance.
I have read lung infections with those with COPD can sometimes ratchet up more permanent loss in lung function. I can barely breath now even walking to the car. Is this what happened? Do you think my lung function will return or improve?
