I’m having a similar experience to you. I’m also a smoker. I’m about to get a second opinion tomorrow as I am really struggling with it all. Just had a lung function test and chest X-ray to see if it was a factor but results were good. Are you working with your doctor to find the cause? I really feel for you. It’s awful going through this and people don’t understand and often it all gets dismissed as ‘anxiety’ which is not fair.

Being told we just have to deal with it is not ok and that’s why I sought a second opinion. Unfortunately, this doc doesn’t really doesn’t want to interfere with current doc. So the most he would do is send me for a stress test and told me to follow up with original doc.

I really hope you get things sorted. X
