I am a bit confused by my symptoms. I expect to get a diagnosis of Mild COPD in a week or two.
Since i stopped smoking in 1998 (because of a cough) when i were 28yo i had regular periods where i felt i could not breathe - and i always coughed more than my peers.
However, FEV1 is at 69 - which is 84% of expected. I do not understand why I have this feeling of breathlessness - as I see stories with many people with scores much lower who say they only feel they have COPD when e.g. doing exercize etc.
Anyone out there also diagnosed early stage long ago that can tell about experiences and how you work to keep your numbers?
