I have a question? I have not had my spirometry test yet (Middle of Jan earliest) but my doctor says my x-ray shows early signs of COPD. I had a chest infection which I was given AB for and then a week later given a 5 day course of prednisolone. It has made a difference as I can run longer and easier on the treadmill. However I still have a bit of a cough (non producing and dry and tight) and I have to keep clearing my throat as it makes my voice go funny (like there's phlegm there) mostly clear in colour. Should I be worried? should I go see my doctor? Or just wait for my test in January? Is this normal for COPD?
