I have only been diagnosed with COPD for a few months and my illness does not seem to be as severe as most everyone on this site. I have been reasonably well within the confines of the illness but this last few days I have developed a pain in my left side just at the base of my ribs and around to my back. Is this something I should see my Dr about? I don’t want to seem like a hypochondriac and running to him for no good reason. Please advise.
