So repeating my spirometry today after having a poor reading 6 weeks ago. Had a spirometry about 3 years ago and was normal and the one I had six weeks ago showed moderate obstruction. I'm 38 and a non smoker and get a bit breathless sometimes which I think is anxiety of the time. I don't cough or have mucous. Totally freaking out that one test can say you have copd. So back today to try it again as the day I did it I was still recovering from a chest cold. Wish me luck

Hi all the best today..I had mine in March results were rotten yet I'm coping not to bad I spite of the heat though the shed load of steroids I'm on might have something to do with that,Ger
It is what It is Greengoddess..that's not a flippant remark I just try to deal with it on a daily basis otherwise I'd probably get overwhelmed..you know the old addige,How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
Hi. All went well and normal spirometry. Was so happy the nurse said it must have been a bad day. Don't think it even indicates asthma although I do still get breathless sometimes it when I'm up and about or sleeping just in periods of inactivity so think it must be anxiety. Thanks. Normal spiro normal x-ray x
