I was diagnosed in Dec 09. I was having symptoms of phlegm in throat in mornings. I am an ex smoker 1/2 pk a day for 30 yrs...My ct scan showed hyperinflation of lungs... which my dr says is chronic bronchitis... I would get bronchitis when I got a cold with a productive cough.. I also was diagnosed w/ Acid reflux I only have the mucus.,. I do not cough.. My back muscles have bee hurting for about a year now, I experience chest pains but have had a thorough cardio workout and heart is fine.. Cardio says angina.. I feel tired and get lightheaded.. not short of breath, but sometimes I feel like I am not breathing.. also get heart palipitations... does any of this sound familiar to anyone.
