Hello Clive,Sorry to hear you’re not feeling too great.

We’re not actually trained to give medical advice at Quit Support.

I would suggest you try to see your GP soon for a check-up where you are able to have tests done if necessary to investigate.

In the meantime, assuming you’re based in the UK, could use the NHS

111 Helpline which is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Hope you get the problem dealt with soon

Kind Reagards,

Fluffy 🙂

Hi Clive, Good advice already from our lovely Fluffy. However most smokers or ex smokers suffer with shortness of breath if they have smoked for a long time. You may find you have started with mild copd. However exercise and healthy diet shouldnt make it any worse. Your G.P. may decide to prescribe you an inhalator to help your breathing. Please keep in touch, and let us know how you are. 🙂👍x
