32 yr old male, gave up smoking 18 months ago after 15 a day for ~10 years. Am really struggling with health anxiety and after coughing up white/clear mucus for the last year since giving up I decided to seek a PFT. Do get some SOB after exertion. A leading pulmonologist interpreted my results and ‘guaranteed’ I don’t have COPD, maybe asthma/rhinitis. However my results seem to strongly indicate chronic bronchitis.
Can anyone help? At a total loss of what to do as I feel I’ve exhausted my options with GPS and private referrals. My family is also really struggling with my failure to trust the experts
