Hi all hope your all ok and had a great easter havent been on for a while as heads been pickled a bit!!
just wanted some advice as after my copd results now it isnt copd?? heads a bit pickled.
Apparently all my breathing problms are due to anxiety and my spirometry results which I am trying to get from specialist say I had a picture of mild obstruction but poor technique and overall normal lung function and my FEV1 was underestimated due to poor technique. and then it follows to say I now dont have COPD??
over time they want to step down my medication over time and now Im confused as when the weather is raining or warm I do get a tight chest maybe from my severe allergies not asthma??
I am obviously happy If I dont have COPD just very confusedf as all my breating problelms since being young Is anxiety.
I wasnt aware anxiety causes daily mucus production which I cannot have antihistamines for as it dries out the mucus and affects breathing even more recently.
Has anyone else ever had a similar diagnosis of anxiety and what is mild obstruction due to poor technique?
just thought after 4-5 years of tests Id be getting somewhere v confused.
also two years ago when having a spirometry my assthma nurse said I had a big set of lungs and off the record I could have copd??
Have a great day all take care.
