Coughing & mucus?

I have a feeling I have asthma. Went thru a yr of hell being sick & then was told I had COPD. Well I stopped smoking (which I thought was causing cough) but I still all of a sudden start coughing like my throat is closing up & then my nose gets filled up. Sometimes I cough up some white thick mucus.
The lung Dr had prescribed Pulmicort Flexhaler for the COPD but didn't say anything about asthma, that was awhile ago. Anybody have this problem?

Re: Coughing & mucus?

Sorry to hear your having such a problem. Did they do a lung function test? Chest x-rays??? By the way I saw one of your old posts on the skin board go there I posted a message there for you.

You need more medicines that that for COPD. And COPD is more involved and complicated than Asthma.

The only thing he gave me was an inhaler that I don't like.

Re: Coughing & mucus?

Is it a tickle on one side of the throat that leads to the cough???

It's almost as if it dries out & I can feel it coming.

Re: Coughing & mucus?

Funny you said that since my nose fills up after I get that. I also have reflux but they said it's the kind caused by nerves. What do you take?
