    can't breathe

    I find it hard to breathe after getting up from a sitting position. when I get out of the car I never make it to my apt door without losing my breathe. I can't carry heavy objects like groceries or even my infant granddaughter. when im under one of these breathing issues i lose all bodily functions. i wet myself because I had no control. thank God I was at my front door. the embarrassment would have been great. I'm a former smoker. quit 8 years ago. i was diagnosed with c.o.p.d. 3 years ago. but the symptoms dont match other c.o.p.d.symptoms. didn't have this problem till after I quit. can somebody relate to these symptoms?

    Those are symptoms of all respiratory issues. Losing urine is probably a symptom of your age. Women of a certain age, shall we say, have this issue. Talk with your gyno about that and your pulmo about the breathing issue. You may need a different inhaler or more of the one you have.
