I was given a diagnosis of C.O.P.D a couple years ago. I'm in my late 30s so it seems unreal. I was referred to a critical care pulmonologist but they would accept the referral from an e.r doctor. I've been jyst ding breathing treatment with albuterol because I don't have insurance and can't afford the advair or fast acting inhaler.
Lately I've been having a flare up for a week with chest pains on the right. I feel bad for always running to the e.r without insurance. Are there programs that I may can look into? After reading up on these flare ups, I'm a little bit concerned that i shouldn't be waiting.
