  2. Hi Rafeal, and thanks for your post - welcome! You may be aware that we cannot provide medical advice or diagnostics over the internet (for your own safety), but your concern certainly warrants a reply.
    There are many risk factors that can be associated with COPD. As well, various different symptoms can accompany COPD. However, not all folks who are diagnosed with COPD have the same risk factors, nor do they present with the same symptoms.
    Having said all that, the way for you to evaluate whether you have COPD would be to contact your medical doctor. What do you think?
    Please do check back and keep us apprised of your progress. Please know, you are always welcome here!
    All the best,
