Hi all, I was diagnosed with stage 2 copd last June and apart from becoming breathless when I walk upstairs I haven’t been too bad. I do get a lot of phlegm in my throat though which is difficult to shift and for the last few days that phlegm has caused my chest to feel a bit raw and I feel a lot of pressure behind my eyes, they feel heavy as if i’m Exhausted. Please can you tell me if this is an exascerbation? I don’t feel really ill and wouldn’t feel that a doctors visit would be justified, but as I am new to copd I don’t know what to do. I would appreciate some comments from you lovely people. I feel so afraid of this disease.
