I recently went to the doctor because I was having heart palpitations. Who then ordered a chest X-ray and EKG. Results came back on the x-ray as mild hyperinflated lungs and slightly enlarged heart. He then referred me to a Cardiologist who during my exam he diagnosed me with COPD. I find it really bizarre I never had any symptoms and from what read very rare in people my age (m 35). I’m currently waiting for results on a echocardiogram and stress test but I’m freaking out about the COPD diagnosis. Is there a chance I have been misdiagnosed by X-ray and EKG alone? Thanks
