10 Signs and Symptoms of COPD


Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a term for two major lung diseases: chronic bronchitis and emphysema. Both of these diseases are incurable but with early treatment, the progression of the disease can be slowed and the patient can enjoy a good quality of life. We’ve compiled a list of some of the signs and symptoms associated with COPD based on information from the NIH and the Mayo Clinic.

Shortness of breath, particularly after doing anything physically demanding, which can worsen as the disease progresses to shortness of breath without any physical exertion.

COPD symptoms may be relieved by taking short walks throughout the day. Find out more.

    At age 29 I was diagnosed with Bronchitis. At that time I had been a smoker for at least for 2 year. My doctor admonished me that if I didn’t quit, the bronchitis could turn into COPD. I had not quit and by the time I was 41, I was diagnosed of COPD. I had severe shortness of breath after energetic activity; even just climbing stairs, wheezing, fatigue and tightness of the chest. I was on Advair and albuteral inhaler. I even used Prima Tene Mist inhaler, but nothing really made me feel better. About two years ago, I began to do a lot of research and learnt about a COPD TREATMENT from Rich Herbs Foundation and their success rate with the treatment,i immediately started on the treatment, i started experience reduction/decline in major symptoms, including the shortness of breath, fatigue, cough and wheezing. Visit RHF page ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om. Its been over 1 years since treatment, i feel great and breath well
