I don’t post here very often, but I was wondering if others with this dreaded illness have found as time goes on more illnesses are being added to list and if so are they directly connected to c.o.p.d . I have very swollen feet and legs, have tablets to reduce water retention, severe cramps in almost all of my body waist down and fingers, bladder weakness and heart palpitations. It’s all getting a bit much to cope with. I am stage 4 with this horrid thing. I would be interested to know if others are suffering from any of these illnesses. I try to do things but am now struggling getting to other rooms needing to rest before attempting to journey back. I am feeling really down about it all it’s so frustrating. Sorry if this sounds like moaning, if nothing else it’s felt like I’ve had someone to talk to.
