Hi all, thank you for reading. I am a bit confused as I have had lung function tests and not really sure what they mean. I am a smoker( I know, im giving up for sure, start mon) watched my mum die of empysema. I have had a cough for about 5 years and had regular chest xrays, which have all been ok. Cough has been worse over last year and am really struggling to breath and constant pains in my chest, not heart related. I also feel dizzy a lot. was sent to chest clinic for spirometery tests, am so scared and although cliché that's why I haven't given up yet, feel like im about to cark it.I am 44. the results say sats on room air 100%. FEV1 82% FVC of 106% of predicted value, I am unsure what all this means, not on any meds or inhalers and haven't been told I have copd, but obviously I know the damage done by smoking. Please don't tell me to give up, I am for sure, can anyone shed any light please. Thank you all for reading and wish you all well. susanne
