This is the scenario. I got a call from my insurance company that I have COPD from one of the nurses and wanted to know if I would like to talk. I never got a verbal diagnosis from a doctor. Anyway,what do u think? If I do have COPD I dont have the coughing part But I get mucus stuck in my throat and chest. I have a tightness in chest feeling and I have episodes where I have a gagging fit that can produce me vomiting up yellow mucus. I had trouble catching my breath on those episodes.I also get palpitations during these episodes. I also can hear not wheezing sound but mucus sound during episode periods. when I am okay I am okay.This is not all the time. Any thoughts or knowledge on this? Thanx so much!
