i was diagnosed with Asthma about 15 year ago . This year i have a had a constant wheeze on my chest , i take 3 inhalers , salbutomol, symycort and spiriva( spiriva which was prescribed to me 3 months ago has made little differance) ..I get severe bouts of cough and bring up phlem and at the same time iam soaked in sweat ...At least once a night i get this . But more concerning is that iam finding that if i do any activity iam going into a severe bout of coughing and severe sweating ...This could have if i walk from one room to another or even when aim puttting my clothes on . If i go go into a steam room i get some relief bu soon as i walk out into the open the coughing starts . I feel more and more fatigued . Iam 49 Years old and also i have diabetes and on insulin. I feel at times that i am restricted to doing "normal " things due to the worry that my wheezing will start into a major cough bout and the sweating will start . Is this COPD ?
