I am under the care of a doctor, I had my heart checked out a year ago when I was in the hospital. I feel out of breath, I'm a server but I can barely keep up with my tables. I am 45 and I'm in perimenapause. I have terrible hot flashes which I know are normal in menopause. I just feel like my body is fighting me and I'm not fighting back very hard. What do you think?

      @minionmaniac Jesus I'm on the same boat and it scares me because often copd is terminal

      Hopeless... can I ask what your other symptoms were of copd? I also struggle with shortness of breath and a bunch of other symptoms. My doctors suggested asthma but my inhaler doesn't fully help my symptoms. I also don't have a cough so I never really considered copd until I read you message!

      I used to vape and I thought it was helping me relax but I kept having more hot flashes and shortness of breath. The nicotine raises your heart rate blood pressure and anxiety tbh and once I came to terms with that I didn’t look back. It took about 2 weeks and I noticed how much better I felt and could breathe easier

        @Summer2022 that makes perfect sense. I guess it's time to get rid of the vape for good! I'm ready to. I thank you all for your advice!!!!❤️

      Are you a smoker ?

        @Scorpio68 yes I do vape but not heavily. I'm sure that could have something to do with shortness of breath but I've lately cut back on vaping.

          @Becky29485 get a chest xray, I have been short of breath with many other symptoms as well I am 48, was told 3yrs ago that I suddenly have asthma but I never believedthat to be true, turns out I have COPD, found out 2 was ago, I don't have a cough or any of the other nasty symptoms of copd 😥

      Have you been to the doc recently?

        @smilebig98 yes, less than a month ago. I told her of my shortness of breath and she listened to my heart and didn't make too much of it.
