Thanks for your input.
I was diagnosed with panlobular emphysema five months ago. Quite sudden onset, and it is rather progressed with large bullae in the lower lobe. Still a mystery to the doctors how I ended up with it, as I have never smoked or been exposed to pollution. I don't have Alpha-1 Antitrypsin deficiency either.
Luckily I am not prone to anxiety issues. I consider it a great gift to be able to stay positive whilst dealing with all the unknown factors a diagnosis like this brings with it.
That said, I still have to get used to the fact that I am no longer able to breathe like I used to. When it was discovered back in June it took some getting use to not take these deep breaths, that you by instinct do when feeling that you don't get enough air. I think I have managed quite well, that's why I was a bit puzzeld that this sensation of more air-trapping occured.
