I have suffered from asthma for many years and was diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apneoa in 2009. I saw my consultant at Respiratory Clinic this week, (sleep apneoa check up) and after discussing how things have been, he said that he was pretty sure that I now also have COPD. Given my history, that I am a smoker and a family history, I was a high risk for COPD and I am now exhibiting signs and symptoms. I am registered disabled due to above conditions and other health and mobility issues. My question is, do I now need to see my own GP to get the diagnosis confirmed? Would I need treatment straightaway?
