    And it ain't pretty. COPD. One would think I am too young for an old fogey disease. At least it can be managed...

    COPD= Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

    Hey, it IS controllable. I just need to figure out the right mix of meds to make it work for me. I am just thankful to know I am not out of my mind and coughing and gagging for no reason.

    I'm sorry you have it but I'm glad they found a diagnosis so they can start treating it.

    Now you have the information you can formulate a plan. The not knowing is worse I think. Healthy vibes coming your way.

    I'm glad you have a diagnosis. Even scarey diagnosis are better than not knowing. Now you can control it, and move on [​IMG]

    that's half the battle already... hope you find a good combo that works for you. You'll feel like a new woman once you can actually get oxygen into your system again. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dang! Any idea what triggered it ???? It's kind of scary how many lung problems are cropping up in younger and younger peeps.
