Hi all. I have previously been tested 3 times since 2012 by my local pratice using spirometry, as advised due to an xray which showed some scarring changes from smoking. Each time my respiratory nurse advices that i have borderline COPD and many GP visits corroborate this.
However, dispite this advice i remain confused as i feel more and more breathless every few months and now speaking between breaths is becoming and effort. I am very overweight and nearly 50 yrs of age but recently i blew nearly 500 on a peak flow meter which suprsised me. Its so frustrating as i cannot get any clarity regarding my condition nor can i get any usable, meaningful advice or support in my GP area.
Wondered if this is a common scenario among other sufferers.
