I am a 27 year old female who has been very healthy all her life. A few years ago I started having some breathing problems. I had smoked a pack a day for around 8 years. This spring my breathing problems had been the worst yet (shortness of breath from daily activities, severe shortness of breath)so I went to my doctor who did one pulmonary function test on me and said I had emphysema. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with emphysema at this young of an age. Any informatin would be greatly appreciated!
