Hi all. I had my Spiro results this morning from my Gp. He said that my Fev1 /fv was at 68% and that my Fev1 was at 70%. That I am now classed as having copd. I asked him if that was why when I walk up stairs or a steep hill I am out of breath and my heart pounds in my chest as I had put it down to being unfit which he said it could be a bit of both. I asked so what happens now do I need any meds. His response has left me confused. He replied that he doesn't want to put me on inhalers or pills until I come back saying its effecting my daily routine.
Is the getting out of breath on stairs and the wheeze I have not call for some kind of help? All he went on about was me quitting smoking which I intend to do. So should I maybe see another Gp or just wait till I'm worse ? Cos I don't think his attitude was to good . ? Any thoughts ??
