After I got diagnosed with COPD in Feb 2016, I ended up losing my job with a global FM company. A clever move by them. So my wife and I sold up and have only recently moved to the sea coast of Lincolnshire.Before leaving Berkshire, I had my 12 monthly COPD review and had to provide the nurse with Spirometry tests. I recall the year before when I provided these. On the second blow, my throat erupted with a burst like a trumpet and I felt a mass of discomfort high up in my right lung. The problem is I was left with a hoarsey voice which even today is getting worse and I do struggle to talk. Can anyone relate to this as being part of the problem having COPD ?
