Hi, I am 51 years old, have ME/CFS, Anxiety/Depression/Agoraphobia with panic attacks and PTSD. I went to the dr's two weeks ago as I always feel ill with aches, pains and fatigue, dr done a load of bloods, she said the blood had low oxygen and could indicate COPD (Mum has COPD also), so a few days later I had a spirometry test with the nurse, 78% on the first blow then took my inhaler (Salamol) came out at 102% Nurse said it is clear the inhaler is helping as it opened my lungs to 102, then Nurse said i am 78% and have mild COPD and the dr would be in touch, I didn't hear from dr, so went yesterday to discuss the results, dr said I didn't have copd, I explained that she was looking at the after inhaler results and explained what the nurse had said to me. dr said she would see if nurse had written it elsewhere and i left that with her. I am so confused and this is stressing me out, i have cut down my smoking considerably and went all day yesterday without smoking until I saw the dr, I was that stressed i had smoked, based on what i have told you, do you think I have copd or not, I need to know so i can calm down and really stop this smoking but this is really stressing me out. greatly appreciated any advice. TIA.
