How would I know if I have COPD?

ANSWER

You might have chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) if you have shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing. It usually comes as a result of long-term exposure to cigarette smoke, air pollution, chemical fumes, or dusts. Emphysema and chronic bronchitis typically play a part in it.
