Re: Bronchitis not going away?Do i have COPD?

It could be the lingering effects of the bronchitis. If not, then more likely it's asthma caused by the damage from the bronchitis. COPD is unlikely. I'd wait another month and see how you feel. If no improvement, then see a pulmonologist for a full work up.

In the mean time, use your inhaler 15-20 minutes before any cardio (2 puffs, 60 seconds apart). It should help (that's the standard method for us asthmatics before we jog or do anything cardio).
