COPD: Sign and Symptoms

For Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease there are no symptoms or sometimes it may show mild symptoms. As the disease gets inferior, symptoms usually progress more severe. The first symptom of COPD is usually a long-term or chronic cough. If you have COPD, you also may often have colds or other respiratory infections such as the flu, or influenza. COPD symptoms often don't appear until significant lung damage has occurred, and they usually worsen over time, particularly if smoking exposure continues. Symptoms include- increasing breathlessness – this may just occur when exercising at first and you may sometimes wake up at night feeling breathless, a persistent chesty cough with phlegm that never seems to go away, frequent chest infections, persistent wheezing.
