I’m 30 and a mild case - fev/fvc - 72% AND FEV1 - 93 both post BD.
I found this when I visited a pulmo for something I’d been feeling. When I researched a little more it seems like it is sighing dyspnoea. I want to understand if there are other people in this group who are facing this. Since, as I understand mild cases are usually asymptomstic.
Other than this I’m able to run 7KMs every other day in decent times. A little below average but I try to make the most of it (I’m trying to get in shape). Quit smoking almost 2 months back and got myself on a good diet after being diagnosed.
But ever since the sighing dyspnoea thing has started I’m feeling it almost every 10 minutes. More reasearch tells me this is mostly a result of anxiety since the real dyspnoea caused by COPD is treatable through BDs. Also, I’m a really anxious person. Used to smoke weed and ever since I’ve quit the anxiety has just gotten worse
