Hi, I am 49 years old. I have recently been diagnosed with copd. I have been asthmatic since the age of 21, had bronchula pneumonia aged 5 and bronchitus at least once a year until diagnosed asthmatic. I have been stopped smoking for 1 and a half years and I was working in a very dusty environment with wood dusts and pottery glazes. My lung capacity was 70% just over a year ago and it feels like the inside of my chest is in constant pain. I am getting out of breath especially walking up banks or doing anything physical. I can feel my heart beat in my face and I sweat a load. I am a newby to copd, dont know much about it but have read different conflicting reports online. I was wondering if anyone else has the same sort of symptoms? Thankyou
