I went to the doctor yesterday because I was having difficulty breathing. I've been feeling like it's hard to get air into my lungs. The doc did a spirometer test on me the result show that I might have COPD. Does anyone else here have that? I still feel like I'm having trouble breathing but I'm not sure if I should go back to the doctor because when they checked my pulse ox I was at 100%. I would love your feedback and to hear about any experiences with COPD.

Hi Kcrispcat,
Are you getting any relief from your symptoms yet?

Yes. My doc did start me on a new inhaler and I'm not having the same tightness in my chest that I was having before.

Give your inhaler a few more days to help, if your not better by Monday then go back and ask about another inhaler. Sounds like the inhaler is helping but not yet at 100%, so give the medication(inhaler) a few more days to work good for you and then seek out help if your not yet 100% by Monday.
