Hi everyone am new on here. Have been struggling with shortness of breath on exertion eg walking upstairs, uphill, swimming etc for the last year. An X Ray at that time was completely normal, tried two inhalers didn't make any difference. A repeat X Ray last week has shown mild emphysema at base of both lungs. Feel really upset by this, am otherwise fit and well 62 and have never smoked. Am awaiting a respiratory referral. Any advice very welcome. Many thanks.
