I have had two occurrences of sinusitis. Post-nasal drip, cough etc. Mucus (clear) and coughing after lying down. Will be seeing doctor today. Does this mean my moderate COPD is getting worse? I've looked online and they say that means I'm getting worse. I try to be careful so what more can I do? Last time this happened I went when my throat became sore and the antibiotics took care of it. Does this count as an exacerbation? I'm turning 70yrs old in May but even with the COPD I haven't needed any meds. I live alone with no family or close friends so I sometimes get frightened. Thanks to all of you on this site. I know things could be so much worse for me. All of you are an inspiration to me. God bless!
