Can pva glue cause chest and lung pain or could it be the weather. I lost my wonderful Mum to copd in October last year. She was 72 and died of co2 poisoning. I was with her when she died and it is only now hitting home just how serious and scarey copd can be. I have moderate copd my Mum was severe. I miss her so much. We used to help each other through times when it got us down. My Mum gave up in the end. I so wish she had been more positive and had a bit more fight in her but she was too tired I think.
