Two years ago I was diagnosed with mild emphysema. I was given a inhaler to use when needed. I have tried to lead a healthy life as possible and stopped smoking before being diagnosed. I feel in the last few months there has has been a change , especially going up stairs,hills ect. It's when I reach the top that it can take several minutes to get my breath back. I know that I should go back to the Doctor and maybe start medication but I am anxious to take this next step.
