Hi, Hope you are all well. I was diagnosed with copd in January this year. To be truthful with all of you good people I still can't get my head around this condition. I have tried to read up about this condition from the internet but sometimes the Internet is not always right I'm really bothered about what copd can do. I get breathless also I get chest infections, coughing and I also have lots of thick mucus which I take medication to make the mucus easier to bring up. I am not going to lie I am scared I just don't know who else I can talk to who has this condition themselves. I am on another inhaler called fostair along with ventolin. I also have a condition called scoiosis which is curvature of the spine. My ribs are twisted and are crushing my lungs also. I have had surgery which I had a rod inserted and discs taken from my right side. This condition also affects the nerves in your legs, neck, arms, and back of your neck and head which causes a lot of pain.
Please can anybody tell me about help or advice I can get. Thankyou to you all..
