Just diagnosed with COPD and slight asthma. My lungs are clear(so they say). My bronchial has spasms from irritants, been coughing for 1 1/2 years but mid August severe coughing and spasms. But, off and on when I breath in and out I have needle like pains in my chest and also my back where lungs are. Been down since September 28th and unable to work. Coughing so much fractured rib. In and out of doctors and emergency rooms. Finally did PFT test October 25th. Diagnosed October 26th with COPD.
Also, having muscle pain when ready to do inhalers or nebulizer. And after for a good while . Is that normal?
