I have already received a few responses to my questions and I want to say thank you so much for your insight. I was asked about my numbers . So my story is, I'm 46 years old, never smoked a day in my life. However, growing up in the 70's every one else smoked. Both my parents smoked in the house , so I'm sure that wasn't helpful. I get bronchitis once a year. I do get short of breath when I have it. I recently went to the ER for my cough. I was told my lungs sound good and the dr. Didn't hear any wheezing. After a chest xray he said my lungs look streched and long which looks like COPD. I have a pulmonologist appointment in 2 weeks ( soonest I am able to get) and I am a mess waiting to see what he says. I'm afraid to not live a long life and see children get married. Darn, I am scared to die period. I welcome any and all information. Thank you
