Help

Hi there, I wonder if you can help. I haven't been diagnosed with COPD, I have asthma, but I feel as if I have COPD. My GP says my spirometry from 4 years ago is fine and not to worry.

However I don't feel right at all, I find going to work hard work and usually feel tired just after lunch and need a 30 minute sleep. I don't do any exercise because I get tired after a few minutes.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I haven't smoked for 11 years but I did smoke for 22, my peak flow is 400

Hi 4 years is a long time ago and you need a new spirometry test. I would go back and insist your doctor does a new one.

If you are in the UK you can always ring the BLF nurses. They work office hours 9-5. x
