I am new hear and have had breathing problems since 2000. I had beleived started from a bad exposure to chemicals.I also smoke (not much)(not excuse)I ended up with chest pain and spent a day in hospital from being completely ill.NO coughing.Just chest pain and breathing. Well they came back and said I probably had pneumonia from chems.I have just found reports for that due to ss.case.Inhomogeneous perfusion uptake of both lung fields with minimal imhomogeneous retention, consistant with mild copd airway process.That was 10/30/00 It says-Ill defined air space opacity near the posterior,left costophrenicc angle, likely repesents an early infiltrate.remainder lungs clear.that was 10/00.Then the lower lobe was cleared in xray.I continued to be told i had asthma. I have begged because the breathing has become so bad.in 2002 they compared to 2000. It say lungs are clear of an active process notible opacity. Does this mean that I have copd still. It doesnt go away on its own does it?(sorry i am curious)(need to breath is great)Anyone help me understand. I have worked in harsh chems all my life and have been around heavy smokers all my life.ugh.I tend to sound hypocrtycal on the smoking but I do hate it.My fam chains smokes and it is horrible.Should I focus on this. like I said they just keep blowing me off with asthma.He has not checked anything ,breathing ,capacitys or doesnt think i need to see anyone. I cannot breath to the point i want to pass out at times especially when i get hot. ( i also have cfids/fm/mcs) PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!! newbie here littlemiss

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
